Applications protected by ArchPass, such as eLC, Athena and vLab, have two steps to the login process instead of one:
1) Enter your MyID and password
2) Verify your ID with a phone or tablet enrolled in Duo. You can verify your ID with a push notification to a smartphone, a passcode generated through the Duo Mobile App; an SMS text notification to your cell phone; or a phone call to your cell phone or landline phone.
You can find further instructions on using all of the authentication methods on Using ArchPass Two-Step Login.
For web-based ArchPass logins (vLab or CAS-protected applications), you will have the option to have your browser remember your ArchPass login for 14 days. Before you verify your ID, click "Remember Me for 14 days." After 14 days, or if you switch to different device or web browser, you will have to login with ArchPass again.
The "Remember Me" option is currently not available when accessing eLC or Athena through the UGA mobile app, due to Apple's security settings.
Follow these steps to log in to the VPN:
1. Start your VPN client. (Go to Remote Access VPN to install the client if needed.)
2. Connect to remote.uga.edu to go to the login screen.
3. In the login screen, select "01 Default" from the drop-down menu.
4. Enter your UGA MyID and password.
5. In the Second Password field, enter your authentication method of choice.
You can find further instructions on Using ArchPass to access the VPN.

In addition to smartphones and tablets, you can also enroll a regular cell phone or a landline phone. With these options, you do not have to have the Duo Mobile App. You can authenticate using numeric passcodes received via SMS text (cell phone) or with a phone call to your device (cell phone or landline).
Students, faculty and staff who do not have access to any phone or tablet should contact the EITS Help Desk at email@example.com for other options.

Laptops and desktop computers are not supported Duo authentication devices. To use Duo you will need a supported device such as a smartphone, mobile phone, landline phone or tablet. It's very likely that Duo will work on a device you already own or have access to.
If you left your device at home or the battery on your device has died, and you need immediate access to an ArchPass-protected system, such as eLC or Athena, please contact the EITS Help Desk at 706-542-3106 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Help Desk will ask you your MyID security questions to verify your identity and grant you access to eLC, Athena and other ArchPass-protected systems.
In advance, you can also generate a list of 10 passcodes via SMS texting to keep, in the event you don’t have your phone. Each passcode can only be used once. Each bank of passcodes is only good for 30 days.
We also recommend you enroll a back-up device, such as another phone or tablet, that can be used in the event you do not have access to your primary device. If you do not have another device you can use for back-up, you can request a keychain token from the Help Desk.
If your Duo-enrolled device has been lost or stolen, you should contact the EITS Help Desk immediately at 706-542-3106 or email@example.com. The Help Desk can remove this device from your account, so it cannot be used gain unauthorized access to your UGA accounts. Once you have recovered or replaced the device, you can enroll again.
We also recommend you enroll a back-up device, such as another phone or tablet, that can be used in the event you do not have access to your primary device.
If you are not allowed to use a phone during your class, and need to log in to eLC, we recommend you log in before class or at the very beginning of your class, before you shut your phone off. You can select the “Remember Me for 14 days” option when logging in, so your browser will remember your ArchPass login.
Alternatively, you can use the SMS text option to generate a bank of 10 passcodes to keep, in the event you can’t use your phone. Each passcode can only be used once. Each bank of passcodes is only good for 30 days.
You can also request a keychain token from the Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-542-3106 if you do not want to use your phone.
If the phone number for your device has not changed, you can reactivate the device using the Duo Self-Service Portal. Login with your MyID, use the “Call Me” option to authenticate, and select the device you wish to reactivate. You can find complete instructions here.
If the phone number for the device has changed or you need assistance in activating Duo on a new device, please contact the EITS Help Desk at 706-542-3106 or via email at email@example.com.
Duo will lock users out of their accounts after 5 failed attempts.
Accounts will automatically unlock after 60 minutes.
You may email the EITS Help Desk or call them at 706-542-3106 to request your account be unlocked.
Your device may be having trouble deciding whether it should use a Wi-Fi or cellular data connection.
Most of the time you can resolve this issue by putting your phone into airplane mode, waiting a few moments and switching back to standard mode. You may also resolve the problem by turning off the Wi-Fi to use cellular data only.
If you are still having trouble, try using another method such as text message or generating a passcode.
If you continue to be unable to use your device, make sure the time and date on your phone are set correctly.

The VPN is set up to disconnect if you are idle, or not using it, for 30 minutes. For example, if you logged on in the morning and had to attend a long meeting you will probably be disconnected from the VPN while you are away from your desk.
The VPN will also disconnect you if you are logged in and working too long. The maximum connection time for the VPN is 19 hours.
If you have only one device enrolled, you may wish to enroll a backup device prior to deactivation to continue using Duo.
First, add one or more backup devices using the Duo Self-Service Portal.
If you are trying to log into a CAS application protected by ArchPass, such as eLC, Athena or the vLab, choose your back-up device from the drop-down menu. Then select your authentication method.
If you are trying to log in to the VPN, you will need to type the login method and a number in the second password field.
For example, if you want to log in with your backup telephone, you can type "phone2". You will then get a call on your backup phone. If you prefer to get push notifications, simply type "push2" in the second password field to get a push notification to your second device.
If you wish to add additional landlines, you can do so by going to the Duo Self-Service Portal.
After you have additional landlines, you may specify which phone you use each time you login by typing “phone” to use your first phone, or “phone2” to use your second phone, or “phone3” to call your third phone, etc.
Students enrolling at UGA for the first time in summer 2018 or fall 2018 are not required to use ArchPass until August 3. You will not be able to enroll devices until this date.
On August 3, you will be able to visit the Self-Service Portal or one of the applications protected by ArchPass to enroll.
There are several reason why you may not see the “Remember Me” option when you log in with ArchPass
To fix this, you should visit the Duo Self-Service portal at archpass.uga.edu. Once you have authenticated, you should see the My Settings and Devices screen. Go to When I log in, and select Ask Me to Choose an authentication method. Then click Save.
Now, each time you log in, you will be prompted to choose an authentication method (Call Me, Enter a Passcode or Send Me a Push). You will also be able to select “Remember Me for 14 days”.
