The Duo security token is used by members of the Virginia Tech community as a second-factor authentication device to gain access to services protected by Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) in instances when a phone is not a viable second-factor option. Users press a button on the device to generate a 6-digit code that will be entered into the passcode field when logging into a service that requires 2FA.
The cost of a Duo D-100 token is $27 + tax and shipping charges may apply.
There are two ways to purchase a token depending on your location.
Option 1 (off campus):
- Print and complete the order form. (You will need to provide your VT ID number on the form.)
