BGSU Account: Two Factor Token Purchase

Who can use it?

BGSU Faculty, Staff, Students

What is it?

The process for purchasing a Duo Two Factor Authentication security token. ITS recommends purchasing a token only if you have no other means for authenticating your device (alternative methods include mobile phone, tablet, office phone, etc.). Purchased tokens are meant to be used for an extended period of time. If you need an authentication token for less than 14 days, we suggest renting a token. Click here for more info

Where to get it?

There are two options for purchasing a Two Factor token – a personal purchase or a department purchase. If your department will be purchasing the token, please complete the “Request Token” form on this page. After completing the form the Technology Support Center (TSC) will contact you when your token is ready for pickup.

If you are purchasing a security token with your own money, please visit the TSC in 110 Hayes Hall. Personal token purchases may be made using your BG1 card/BG Bucks.

How to use it?

When logging in to a protected service, you will be prompted to authenticate using Two Factor Authentication. Choose the "Enter Passcode" option from the Choose your authentication method window. Press the green button on your security token and enter the 6-digit number into the box and select "Login". You should now have access to the protected service. 

How much does it cost?

There is a $20.00 fee for the purchase of each token.
