You may have noticed that the Duo Mobile app has a new look. The latest update, available for iOS 13/Android 8 and later, offers an improved authentication experience and expands current language and accessibility support.
Despite these changes, the core Duo functionality that UB students, faculty and staff rely on is still available.
According to the Duo website, “Version 4.0.0 of Duo Mobile was designed to enhance the login experience while improving... awareness of the purpose and value of two-factor authentication.”
The new Duo Mobile uses a new, card-based design for accounts, where account cards can be expanded, collapsed, and arranged based on your preference. The app also includes a new practice login screen that demonstrates the purpose of two-factor authentication.
Accessibility was also a consideration in designing the new update. Version 4.0 of Duo Mobile features a new landscape mode, variable font sizes and better contrast.
