Using Duo in China

To improve security at the University, we are introducing Duo Security, a two-factor authentication system. Duo will work in China, you should be aware of the following guidance.


Downloading the Duo mobile app

If you are in China you can download the Duo Mobile App direct from the Duo website.

If you are travelling to China, download the app before you arrive in China as the Google Play store is not available in China.

Using the Duo mobile app

If you cannot use the push notification, you can use the app to generate a passcode to authenticate rather than using the push notification.

Can I use passcodes sent via SMS message?

Yes, SMS messages sent from Duo should work in China.

For more  information on using Duo in China see the Duo website.
