Duo sign ups recently hit 50 percent–a key milestone as the Jan. 31 registration deadline approaches. Enjoy only having to change your NinerNET password every 365 days* (instead of every 90 or 180 days) by signing up for Duo 2-Factor Authentication today, if you haven't already.
1. Eduroam WiFi Certificate Starts Dec. 19Starting Dec. 19, when connecting to eduroam, you might see a certificate message asking you to trust it, especially on mobile devices. Go ahead and select trust. You also might need to forget the network and re-connect. This is happening because the eduroam certificate had to be removed.
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.
