Integrate DUO Two-Factor Authentication

If your organization is using multi-factor authentication, you can configure EmpowerID to enable users to use Duo as a second factor by registering your corporate Duo account in EmpowerID and adding Duo Two-Factor Authentication to any Password Manager policy or SSO application as a multi-factor authentication type.


In order to use Duo, your organization must have a Duo account. If you do not have a Duo account, you can sign up for one by visiting
