How to Log In Faster

Try these tips to save time during your daily login process.

Reduce your two-step authentication requests

Once you have authenticated, you might see a screen that asks if you want to trust the browser. You’ll have the option to select “Yes, trust browser.” This takes the place of the “Remember Me” screen. 

  • If you click Yes, trust browser the browser will automatically remember you, and you will not be prompted to authenticate for that application or service for the next 90 days.
  • If you select No, do not trust this browser, you will still authenticate and continue onto your desired site; however, you will be prompted to re-authenticate each time you log into an application on that browser. 
  • Remember, public or shared computers shouldn’t be saved as trusted browsers.

Automate Duo Mobile push notifications

The new prompt does not offer a way to configure a default authentication device (see "Universal Prompt" on the Duo support webpage).  Therefore, you can no longer set a default authentication method by navigating to accounts.stanford.edu and selecting the "Two-Step" tab.

Instead, you will always be prompted for your last-used authentication method.  If you select an option and authenticate with it, you will automatically be prompted with it until you authenticate with a different method. To choose a different authentication method from what is initially provided in the prompt, select “Other options." 

Respond to a Duo Mobile push from a locked device screen

If you have an iOS device, you can respond to a Duo Mobile push request without leaving the lock screen. When the Duo Mobile prompt appears on your device, tap the prompt to view it, then tap Approve and verify your identify using Touch ID, Face ID, or by entering your unlock PIN.
