Have you signed up yet? Starting today, most employees* and sponsored guests who use Duo now only need to change their NinerNET password every 365 days–no more changes every 90 or 180 days! Why? Since Duo adds an extra layer of security, it's no longer necessary to change passwords as often.

Duo 2-factor authentication provides an extra layer of protection to your accounts, keeping your information safer and more secure.
