Change the default device you use to verify your identity.  (Note: This will not be available if you only have one device set up.)

  1. Click the drop-down next to Default Device.

Change how your device is identified.

  1. Click Device Options.
  2. Click Change Device Name.
  3. Enter a new name into the name field.
  4. Click Save.

This will re-link your Tufts account to your Duo Mobile app.  Be sure to use a computer separate from the device that has the app installed. (i.e. laptop or desktop computer not your smartphone)

  2. Click Reactivate Duo Mobile.
  3. Choose type of phone.

  5. Check the box indicating "I have Duo Mobile installed."
  6. Click Continue.
  7. Return to your mobile device and open Duo Mobile.
  8. If you receive the send notifications window, tap Allow to ensure your authentication alerts will pop up even if you do not have the app open.

  10. If requested, tap OK to allow Duo Mobile to have access to your camera. (See Email an Activation Link if you do not wish to allow access to your smartphone's camera.)
  11. Hold your camera in front of the barcode or tap Scan Barcode to scan the barcode that is displayed on your computer. 

Once the process is complete the barcode on your computer will display a large green check and your Duo Mobile app will display an account for Tufts University.

If a device is no longer needed, you can remove it. (Note: If you only have one device enrolled, you will not see the option to delete.)
