Duo two-factor authentication changing WordPress login process

To maintain the security of the university’s web presence, all WordPress sites will require Duo two-factor authentication (2FA) for login beginning Monday, May 2. This change will help keep websites secure if a content editors’ username and password are compromised.

Websites impacted include:
· wp.uthscsa.edu
· lsom.uthscsa.edu
· labs.uthscsa.edu
· library.uthscsa.edu
· campaigns.uthscsa.edu
· students.uthscsa.edu
· magazines.uthscsa.edu
· news.uthscsa.edu
· everythingittakes.org

This new security implementation will require administrators to access Duo 2FA similar to connecting to campus resources remotely.

Instructions may be found in this enrollment guide.
