Set Duo Multifactor Authentication to “Remember” You for 24 Hours

Tuesday, January 12, 2021 - 08:49


Multifactor Authentication at Pitt (Duo) is now even easier with the “Remember me” feature. After you have selected “Remember me,” you will not need to use Duo multifactor authentication again for 24 hours when accessing web apps through Pitt Passport, as long as you use the same browser, on the same device.

To use the feature, click the Remember me for 24 hours checkbox at the bottom of the Duo authentication screen, then select your authentication method. If the “Remember me” box does not appear, click Cancel and then you should be able to select the checkbox and proceed to authenticate.

  • Tip: Your Internet browser must allow cookies from the domain to be stored on your computer in order for the feature to work.

Some services timeout in fewer than 24 hours, which will prompt you to enter your username/password on the Pitt Passport login screen to re-enter, but will not require you to accept a push from Duo.
