Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Using 2FA helps secure your online identity and personal information, and protects FGCU's intellectual property and institutional data. FGCU has partnered with Duo Security to provide a two-factor authentication solution. The process includes your FGCU username and password (something you know), and a phone or tablet (something you have), to authenticate.

Four Easy Steps

  2. Sign into Gulfline, Canvas or any other system that requires 2FA with SSO and complete your one time 2FA enrollment.  (instructions for enrollment/registration)
  3. Register a secondary device (office phone or home phone)
  4. Log in securely
