Modern options replace MTokens this summer

After nearly 11 years of providing U-M community members with a secure login method, MTokens will be replaced this summer with new, more flexible options from Ann Arbor-based Duo Security. The new solution through Duo supports the U-M IT security strategy to enhance the protection of our institutional and personal data against ever-increasing and sophisticated threats and attacks.

On July 20, those who currently log in to MToken-protected systems through Wolverine Access will stop using their MToken—whether hardtoken or softtoken—and begin using Duo two-factor authentication instead. Some departmental systems that require MTokens may also switch on July 20. (See the full timeline, including UMHS, accompanying this article.)
