Two-Step Verification - PennKey

Modified on Thu, 03 Mar 2022 at 07:34 PM

Two-Step Verification is a required service that provides an added layer of protection for your PennKey account. 

With Two-Step Verification, after you log in with your username and password to Canvas or other PennKey-secured sites, you'll be prompted to verify your identity -- the second step -- using a device in your possession such as a mobile phone or key fob.


Make sure you have the following before you start this task:  

  • an active PennKey account 
  • administrative access to your smartphone to install the Duo Mobile app, which is highly recommended for Two-Step verification 

Note: Two-Step Methods
