Duo - Adding A Device

Duo - Adding a Device

Once the software has been installed on your smart phone or tablet you will need to add the device to your Duo account at OSU. There are a couple of ways to accomplish this but the most straightforward is to utilize the QR Code Reader. Devices and operating systems update at a very fast rate. We will cover the three most common operating systems:

  • iOS
  • Android
  • Windows

To start you will first need to visit the LinkToHealth website where you will be prompted to log in using your username and password. If you are having trouble with your password you may reset it or contact OSUHP Customer Service ((614) 292-4700). If you have not registered for your account previously, please see Duo - Registration Setup.

Start by clicking the Add a New Device link on the left hand side of the frame. If you cannot click Add a new device, you may have turned on an optional feature during the set up process that can cause issues. Please see Duo - Manage Devices & Settings for details.

You will then need to authenticate using Duo to prove you are who you say you are. You may use whatever authentication method you prefer. Please see Duo - Authenticating.

Next you will be asked about Adding a Device. The three options are:

  • Mobile Phone
  • Tablet
  • Landline

Preferred options are mobile phones or tablets capable of running the Duo Mobile App as there is no associated cost to the university. Please see Duo - Installing the Duo Mobile App. Next in line would be to select Mobile phone and enroll a basic cell phone (non-smart phone without the app) number whereby you will be able to receive texts (preferred) or phone calls to pass through authentication. Finally, in the absence of a mobile phone or tablet, it is possible to enroll a Landline.

 

 

 

Mobile Phone

When using the Mobile phone option, you will be presented with a screen requesting the phone number of the mobile phone you would like to register to your account.

You will need to enter the complete phone number and check a box confirming that the number is correct. Then click the Continue button.

Next you will need to tell the system what type of phone you are using. The options are:

  • iPhone
  • Android
  • BlackBerry
  • Windows
  • Other

Most of the options are common smart phone options and you will need to choose the operating system that your phone uses. Other is used for non-smart phones, like a basic flip phone that does not offer text messaging. Choosing this option, you will need to enter your phone number but you will not be prompted to install the Duo Mobile app.

 

 

Select the appropriate radio button and click the Continue button. At this point you will be prompted to install the app on your phone. Please see Duo - Installing the Duo Mobile App. The screen you see may vary depending upon OS type that you selected previously.

Once you have successfully installed the mobile app you can click the I have Duo Mobile Installed button to move forward. You will then be prompted to scan a QR Code to complete the process. Open the Duo Mobile app on your phone and scan the code. Once the QR code is scanned you can click the Continue button to move forward.

The next screen is your Devices and Settings screen. This is where you can manage and change the settings on your device. You will notice there is a check mark in the upper right corner that says Automatically Send me a: with the option of selecting a Duo Push or a Phone Call. If you check this box you will find that turning it off or attempting to get back into the settings becomes difficult. It is recommended that you do not turn it on. If you have turned it on and need assistance in turning it off please see Duo - Manage Devices & Settings.
