ArchPass is UGA's phone-enabled two-step login solution, powered by Duo. It is required for access to several University systems, including the vLab, the Remote Access VPN and systems that hold sensitive or restricted data.
To access a system protected by ArchPass, users must:
Enter their MyID and password
Verify their ID with a phone or tablet enrolled in Duo. Users can verify their ID with a push notification to a smartphone, a passcode generated through the Duo Mobile App; an SMS text notification to their cell phone; or a phone call to their cell phone or landline phone.
Any student, faculty or staff member with a MyID will be required to use ArchPass to access certain university systems, including eLC, vLab, Athena and the Employee Self-Service site. ArchPass is also required for accessing UGAMail and OneDrive for Business off-campus.
