DUO (Two-Factor Authentication)

In an ever-vigilant effort to protect you from security threats, MSU has implemented a two-factor authentication process. The first factor required to login is something you know, i.e. your NetID/NetPassword.  The second factor is something you have, typically your smartphone or tablet.  So even if a hacker is able to steal your password, he should not be able to access your account because he doesn’t have your personal device.
