Duo Mobile App

Duo Mobile works with Duo Security's two-factor authentication service to make logins more secure. The application generates passcodes for login and can receive push notifications for easy, one-tap authentication on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch. Additionally, you can use Duo Mobile to manage two-factor authentication for other application and web services that make use of passcodes. Note: For Duo accounts, Duo Mobile needs to be activated and linked to your account before it will work. You will receive an activation link as part of Duo's enrollment process. You may add third-party accounts at any time. License agreements for third-party Open Source libraries used in Duo Mobile can be found at https://www.duosecurity.com/legal/open-source-licenses.

Duo Mobile app reviews

  • Never use this company. Ever. 1/5

    By Chestermlster
    Support his horrible and just use your phone number. I’d rather deal with cell phone companies than a company that keeps telling me to contact the company I used them for. Stay away. Forever.
  • unreliable 1/5

    By shurm13
    Constant problems with this very poor app. I get notifications of emails in outlook but duo authentication vis microsoft doesn’t work. I recommend my IT departement to junk this app.
  • Not a good 2fa app :( 1/5

    By LlamaLauncher
    My organization began using duo, but everyone I have talked to has had so much trouble with integration, getting new devices attached, etc. The developers also seem to be removing reviews, as this app is widely hated online and in this review section about a few months ago. I would avoid at all costs, there are much better 2 factor authentication apps.
  • Aplicacion 5/5

    By maxima comodidad
    Muy buena y confiable la recomiendo plenamente
  • Great app, some people just don’t like 2FA 5/5

    By Relaxin'Joe
    Ignore people who complain about the burdens of 2FA. Those are not the problem of the app. This is a price for security and compliance. You will adjust and make sure you always have your device just like you don’t leave home without house keys. Same thing. Better than identity theft or a major data breach that gets you fired. This is the best app of the several I have used.
  • Overcomplicated 1/5

    By Jared0789
    The issue of 2FA has been solved many times over in elegant and simple ways. This system is the worst I’ve ever used. But I’m being forced to use it by IT admins so I have little choice. One thing struck me is that the default option is to authenticate by phone call. One, this negates the need to use an app (unless you want an app purely for its own sake), and two, that is the absolute worst 2FA available. As bad or worse than receiving a code by text, except that this system doesn’t provide a code, it tells you to press any key and bam, good to go. Might as well send a code out by Tweet—in fact, might be better because at least there’s no pretense of security that way, unlike this

    By mattv29
    I was having trouble with my phone and had to reset it to factory mode. when i set it up again, i could no longer access duo, locking me out of my instagram. the backup codes provided didn’t work. this company is shady too. last night had 2 star average, suddenly 5 this morning. DO NOT USE IF YOU WANT TO ACCESS YOUR ACCOUNTS ON A NEW PHONE.
  • Ybbmbm bb mbbb buy 5/5

    By Y yr yay
  • Great App! 5/5

    By Loaddownzzz
    I really love using duo as my two factor. It’s compatibility with my watch and phone is great. 😊
  • Could be better 1/5

    By RandomUserOfYourApp
    The developer should set active focus on the text input element when a passcode is required, so that the keyboard will come up automatically, saving the users an extra step each time.
  • I hate it 1/5

    By Gooooood buuuttt
    I hate this app so much I hate having to enter a code from text every time I need to log in to my school network it’s annoying takes way too much time and I want it off my phone
  • Lost everything 1/5

    By lilyy T
    I used this for my Facebook my phone broke and I couldn’t log in because they don’t have any way I can get a code to log in since there’s no backup on this app. Lost my Facebook account I had since 2012 pretty upset and frustrated.
  • Horrible with new device! Avoid at all costs 1/5

    When switching to a new phone you lose all access to your third party apps that are synced with two factor with Duo Mobile and their customer service is horrible for non-pay customers. Nowhere was this communicated on the app. I’ve been spending days trying to access accounts to no avail. Avoid this app
  • Can’t log into my IG account 1/5

    By Josh l553
    So I just got a new phone and trying to set up my duo 2 factor authentication with duo . Duo simply does not recognize my account after gaining access to my account. Is there a way Deactivate my the 2 factor authentication from my account.
  • You guys lied 3/5

    By iblackdc 09067756223
    I thought I will get a call on the all if somebody is trying to login 😒😒😒
  • Support 1/5

    By Gazzini
    Support for this app has been terrible. They have sent me the same text message several times which has not been of any benefit. Have asked for a traditional phone call for help and it has not happened after several attempts on my part.
  • Was forced to use this app by my university 1/5

    By Crazyartist2002
    Having to use this app every time I wanted to log in to my school accounts was already an inconvenience but now that I got a new phone I can’t even do that anymore. It won’t let me get my old duo account back. In order to make a new one on my new phone I need a qr code or an authentication code which my school does not have. I now can’t log in to any of my school without this thing and the new semester starts in a week. I need to access all my school stuff but nope I can’t all because I got a new phone. Oh and guess what my university is closed until the semester starts so I can’t even call the university to get this fixed.
  • Removing bad reviews 1/5

    By sophie.bean
    Any institution thinking of using this, I’m begging you, don’t. I had to download this for my school and work accounts, which I’m currently locked out of because I got a new phone. Aside from that issue, this app is wildly impractical as there is no way to save a trusted device, so every time you log in it adds a significant amount of time, something that has annoyed both me and clients who are now waiting longer to be served. And if your one DUO-associated device is left at home? Too bad! On top of that, this developer is clearly either removing bad reviews of adding fake ones; when I downloaded this app several months ago it was hovering just below two stars, and there has been zero change to UI, not to mention something that would bump it up to five. STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS
  • Password 2/5

    By chicken killer 74
    I forgot my duo passcode and I can’t get into my Instagram account because of this
  • Locked out of accounts 1/5

    By kimprice86
    If you get a new device there’s no way to transfer the authentication so you’ll be locked out. Better to use Google so you can export to a new device.
  • Bad Quality 1/5

    By Hunter Q. K.
    If your initial connection times out, it continues to prompt for approval. You have to tap through that process before proceeding. Basic software quality improvements would go a long way for this terrible 2FA implementation. My advice to IT departments is to stick with other solutions..
  • Everything just work :) 5/5

    By Yizhen1001
    I recently upgrade my iPhone to a newer model, I notice it has iCloud backup option so I gave it a try. It just worked. I do think 2FA in general create user frustration, but to be fair, Duo is on par with other 2FA app one may even say better?
  • 简洁明快 5/5

    By Tonylyn
    界面简洁,没有多余的控件干扰操作,job well done
  • Used with multiple organizations 5/5

    By Josh-604
    I have now worked for 3 companies over the last 9 years that all ended up using duo. In one of my first roles I was one of the duo admins for the org. I found both the admin experience and user experience to be pleasant. Good support.
  • Easy to use, super streamlined 5/5

    By quizzicalamy
    I’ve been using Duo for work and have previously used it at university and have had no problems. Adding new accounts is very easy and it beats carrying around a separate device for 2-factor authentications. Most of the negative reviews here are from user new to 2fa and are getting used to it, or have issues with their own organizations’ IT support. The app itself is great.

    By helen1237654
    it has been over two years since DUO left me locked out of a decade old instagram account. BACKUP CODES DONT WORK IF YOU NEVER SENT THEM DUO. I NEVER DELETE AN EMAIL. this app is a DISGRACE to other protective softwares. just a piece of junk. NEVER install DUO unless you want to lose access to your most important things!
  • Update broke watch app 2/5

    By cblevins0321
    A recent update has caused my Apple Watch push notifications to always hit deny. Like no matter where I touch the pop up, deny is hit. Please fix this.
  • Useless 1/5

    By ehsohdowbs
    This app is completely useless, was forced to get it for school
  • School forced me to use this 1/5

    By Tyhghgzhjugvbf
    School forced me to use this
  • I have another account duo mobile why i can’t login in ? And i delet the app an 1/5

    By i cant login my account
    I can’t login to my first account duo mobile
  • hate this app with all i have 1/5

    By sspeepaw
    stupidest app i've ever had to use. mandatory to take my exams for school and the most useless 2-factor ever. lazy.
  • It’s keep asking to update the app even its updated 2/5

    By Abhinex
    It’s very annoying that it keep asking to update the app even it’s updated to the latest version. I have been seeing this issue from a very longtime. Looks like no one does proper testing.
  • Duo - worst MFA 1/5

    By energi3
    I don’t know why my company chooses this wreck MFA. 80% of the time doesn’t work. Needs several attempts and pushes to get thorough! If you can avoid it, avoid these scammers (duo). Even my 6 year old can design a better app. Amateurs!
  • No Compatibility 1/5

    By KCPTUn
    Not compatible with any other OTP apps.
  • Notifications just don’t work anymore 1/5

    By John Bowen
    App required for work. One job of doing notification and yes/no. Notifications just don’t work properly. Sometimes no notifications. Sometimes expired and delayed. I always have to open app and then refresh to get the approve screen.
  • Lock out issue 4/5

    By burg316
    The app works fine for the most part. I’m not sure what happened but I missed notifications and got locked out for not responding. Anyway we can get an update to notify users if they are locked out? My IT team fixed it quick but it took me several different steps to figure it out. When connecting to VPN, it just said I was unable to connect as an error on the vpn. The duo app would show that nothing is wrong.
  • Extremely inconvenient 1/5

    By UIUC-professor
    Takes me plenty of extra time, extremely inconvenient!
  • Awful 1/5

    Ridiculous that colleges force you to download such a terrible app
  • Needs improvement 1/5

    By thatcjkid
    You should be able to change settings such as turning on auto push, etc from the app. You go to the website after already setting up the device to change settings and it's impossible. You get a congratulations, you've successfully set up your device with no options given if you want to change settings.
  • No need for dual authentication. 1/5

    By Cliff, Cliff’s Ocean
    Waste of students time. Another way to make life increasingly complicated, device dependent, and gather personal information. Thanks educational institutions, for getting it in wherever you can.
  • Again, please include the option to default to Apple Watch 1/5

    By Miguel Luna
    When I’m signing in I sometimes have my phone open to an app that I don’t want Duo to interrupt. Would very much appreciate the option to DEFAULT verification alerts to the watch linked to my phone. Sometimes I end up shutting off my phone screen in order to forward to my watch which is a pain. Doubt anyone at Duo reads these — BUT if you do, please add this feature!
  • Unreliable 1/5

    By _ŒÂ◊
    May or may not get a push notification.
  • :/ 1/5

    By Nerdrocktar
    Everyone gave it a one star so I did too :D
  • went to crap 1/5

    By Dwcoyote
    I use to love how easy it used to be, now it’s kinda dumb. I don’t like having to get a activation code just to get my messages to long into my account. I used to be able to open the app and it would be there now i have to do longer steps. wont be using again.
  • Super great easy app 1/5

    By drinkKavaKava
    Sad to hear those with some replacement phones having issues. That aside. It’s wonderful. It’s better now than a long time ago. It’s simple and easy to use and easier to me. KW to custom name the sections. It’s clear and spaced out with a solid timer and easy copy button. A feature I’d like to see if not already present is ability to add a new phone number through the app with some phone password approval so for instance I can use my wife phone or last week she can use mine while her phone was serviced. Today we need our phones and an ability to manage family or new devices is crucial. The simpler the better as long as it’s secure. I’ve got seven Authenticator apps. Several give problems and one is down now. It would be nice also if they develop a website based way to access in case of apps crashing or stolen phone. Users can set account to their phone or whatever and use while on computer or in emergency. That would be cool too.
  • Don’t use 1/5

    By n00kw
    Worst app ever you will lose all your stuff. If your phone gets stolen or you try to get a new device. It doesn’t transfer over with iCloud worst app ever I promise. If I could give no stars I swear I would
  • Yup there’s a reason the average is 2 stars 1/5

    By imovelover69
    Also, my last review got deleted so somebody is paying someone else to delete truthful reviews that mention anything bad about this app. A filthy company and any college that requires this app or even considers working with these scammers should be ashamed of themselves.
  • I hate it 1/5

    By dee123w
    Complicated and doesn’t work like it says it should.
  • This app doesn’t make things “secure” 1/5

    By LegoLover58
    It just making logging in more frustrating and unnecessarily complicated. Anyone who gives this app 5 stars is either a bootlicker or a shill.
