Don't even bother signing up 1/5
By Dr. LexieGrey
Push doesn't always work. Every time I sign in, I need to have my phone or else I can't. Only got this app cause my school thinks we are all under some security problem
Waste of time 1/5
Takes 5 minutes every time to log in instead of 20 seconds.
Push doesn't work, no way to remove 1/5
When my school introduced 2fa, I started the sign up process to see what it would entail, but was no longer interested as soon as I saw it was with duo and not google Authenticator, since this 2fa isn't required of me. (Also, the App Store wouldn't load.) However, despite not having the app downloaded nor saying that I had it, when I tried to log in I couldn't, because it wasn't "registered to the Duo system"?? I was forced to download this stupid app so I could log in, and had to submit a ticket to IT to have them remove it from my account. The push function also doesn't work, which is the only thing it has over Google Authenticator. I use Google Authenticator because it has a desktop app, and if I can't log in because I don't have access to my phone, with gmail I can also send a text to myself that will push to my laptop. Having duo would have meant there was no way to access my google drive that's connected to my school account without my phone, and that's something I need for my orgs and classes.
Tf uni 1/5
By Mikey p......
I literally can't get to my homework without this now. Bs
Ut Austin forced this 1/5
What would take 30 seconds took 5 minutes in setting up and getting my IRS form. This was so frustrating and pointless.
By Rod was already taken
Easy to use no extra effort needed
Sometimes I will put a push, but it will not show up in the app. Also in general not very efficient and a little troublesome
Forced to use it, unnecessary. Please go away.
Great app with plenty of options to authenticate 5/5
Duo app has a lot of great options (i.e. Push, call, etc) for two factor Auth. It works a lot better than other ones I've used and has a lot more flexibility. I highly recommend this app! The only issue I ever had was it made me re-Scan the QR code, but it could have been other issues so I don't want to blame the app because it may not have been it. I've used it for months since with not even a hiccup!
A vital tool for me 4/5
Many reviews here are about being forced into 2factor authorization by their college. Since Duo didn't force you, giving them one star is only blaming the messenger.
Duo has worked great for me!
Two factor authorization is complicated (that's the idea, folks). Duo has made it relatively simple - code scan setup, if available from your chosen/forced site, greatly smooths the process.
Replacing my phone required reauthorization which was time consuming but welcome. (Otherwise...?)
Duo can do 6 digit code or push authorization - which will depend on the website's IT choices, not Duo.
If you want to not be in a total Google (Authenticator) world, but want 2factor, get Duo.
Weird security app 2/5
It's a two factor authentication app that doesn't support a passcode or Touch ID for itself.
By Indignant User
Like many here I was forced to download this app for my university. Unfortunately, this app was not designed with students in mind.
Pretty solid 4/5
By Geekdad in NC
Nice UI, and pretty easy to use. Only quibble is that restoring this to a new phone requires recreating new codes for every account. I'd suggest the totp seeds get backed up. Also, would be nice to have TouchId integration. The university student reviews posted are misplaced, in my opinion.
Forced to use 1/5
This is a completely unnecessary step, in my opinion. I absolutely detest that my university is forcing me to use this, I don't want it. It should be optional, or recommended, show us why we need to use it and if we want to use great, but don't make us use it.
If someone hacks my account they can have my math homework
waste of space 1/5
this waste of space is being mandated by my university. one star for further screwing over students for money
Barely works 2/5
Recommend moving on, use Google Authenticator or Authy instead.
First and foremost, Duo Mobile loses codes. Used it for 2FA on 6 accounts, several months later 4 had mysteriously disappeared.
No fingerprint or pin authentication. Get into my phone and you get my codes.
Push simply doesn't work in reality. It does with their web component when you set it up, and their screenshots of it look great, but in reality Duo Mobile doesn't do this with Cisco VPN. This feature really seems over represented in their screenshots.
In Duo's defense the authenticator does actually work --but today this is table steaks, it could do so much more if it stops losing codes and tightens up its security.
Being forced to download by school 1/5
By Someone &&&&
Waste of time
Waste of space, do what everyone else does and send a verification code to my phone number. Don't need an app
Poor Idea, poor execution 1/5
A worthless way for an organization to feel like they are being more secure and tech savvy by inconveniencing their users and increasing the surface area of attack.
Very handy 5/5
Don't let all the crying college snowflake 1 star reviews fool you. For people that have to actually deal with hackers and breaches, this is quite useful and definitely beats carrying around a Yubikey or entering a code manually.
By Marty Pie
Ineffably easy to use. A+!
Very annoying 1/5
By Blademaster joshua
My phone was dead at a friend's house and I couldn't submit my assignment. Pointless extra layers.
great tool 5/5
By danny o
My work changed from a RSA Token, to this app for remote login. App works great. Push notifications & 3D Touch support are excellent
Forced to use 1/5
I wonder what kind of backroom deal between IT at the U and his good ole buddy at Duo happened to force us all to use this?? There are better ways to accomplish two part authentication, this seems like some kind of shady partnership.
Duo rocks 5/5
This application is so much easier to use than anything else in this market space. There are some ignorant reviews in here for this
Works excellent! 5/5
I use this app for two factor authentication for my servers and it worked first try without any configuration issues. Do not listen to the negative reviews because they just don't want to use the app because it's forced upon them due to a work/school policy.
University made me do this. Totally redundant as anyone could have entered their phone number, downloaded Duo, and accessed my W2. Why does everything have to be an app now? I don't want this junk on my phone.
My security was never an issue before.... So why is my school shoving this third party program down my throat? Probably to make more money at the expense of its students. And yet, the U can't be bothered to invest in security cameras in the parking lot so the rapes continue. What a joke.
University forced this upon me 1/5
Wow, how much money did this s*** app get to force students across universities to install it on their phones? And the surveillance aspect of it is all the more disturbing.
My university just enforced this app on ALL students. I'm sorry but my phone doesn't have enough storage for anymore apps nor do I want to spend MORE money than I already do for school. #thanks
Stupid and dimb 1/5
School made me get this... app itself is fine but honestly who the f*ck is going to try to hack my Sakai account
Was forced using this to log on to my college account. What a stupid move.
University recently forced this upon the students. What a joke.
Works... but 2/5
By Matt Ras
The flow with them is really awkward, to hook into Cisco VPN you have to know the magic 2nd passphrase to use ("phone", "push", etc). It also doesn't appear to use the standard time based tokens, so you're forced to use their mediocre app instead of something good. Push doesn't appear to work for me at all - I always have to pull to refresh.
By Update Ideas
"2FA" is being shoved down everyones' throats, I assume DUO is being paid massive sums of money. Incredible hassle every time I want to sign on
Doesn't work half the time 1/5
Very unreliable and frustrating
Works great! 5/5
I have to use this access websites at school and work. No issues here.
Great 2 factor authentication 4/5
Works great and smooth for my jobs required 2 factor authentication system as long as you have a fairly decent cellular service signal. If you don't it also offers a passcode list option.
Great two factor auth app... 5/5
Works quickly when authenticating and extremely easy to use.
Not 100% 1/5
Only works about half the time. It's slow when it does work.
Actually the worst 1/5
This app has no friends.
Watch App Needs improvement 3/5
For approving multiple connections, the Watch app only catches the first approval request. Any other pending approvals you will need to see on your phone. Not very useful.
New iOS requires at least two actions to authenticate.
The app doesn't work 1/5
VPN takes forever to connect to. This app is terrible.
Watch update causes problem! 1/5
By Radio Operator 226
The October 28 Apple Watch update resulted in Duo not sending the "Accept" / "Reject" buttons to the watch. Now only the numeric code appears! Disappointing!
Not very convenient to use 3/5
I am required by university to use this each time I login super computer. I use it so often, and find that it takes so long time and tedious to tap at each request and tap 'authorize', especially when I have 4 to 8 requests at one time. Could you please offer users an option to always automatically authorize all requests at certain timeframe or a function like "authorize all"? It will make a big difference to users like me.
Very Secure and usefull 5/5
By Rishabh India
This app is very secure, don't go on the review above. This app works like a charm.
Each time you login it can verify login info using 3 ways push notification, call and messages. This is very usefull for someone who know how to use it.
