Highlight for Student: 2-factor Authentication to Protect Your Account
Since term starts, couples of phishing attacks were reported which aim to stealing password.
To protect your personal data, we encourage students to try out 2-factor authentication (2FA), an option commonly adopted in the industry. Even if your password is leaked, no one can access your account without your 2nd factor.
The 2FA solution, DUO, is now available to students to access mailbox and CUHK VPN. The only prerequisites are
- A valid student account
- A mobile device with the app "DUO Mobile" downloaded from the app store.

You can now enroll your account and devices for 2FA via 2FA Self-service User Portal (https://duo.itsc.cuhk.edu.hk/).
