Preferred Options Using The Comma Delimiter

If you DO NOT want to use Duo, and you have a preferred option that is set up, then you can use the comma delimited option.

  • Push - To use the PUSH option, you would enter your password, followed by a comma and then the word "push".
    Example: if your password is Abc123, you would enter "Abc123,push". This will send a push to your device for approval
  • Phone - To use the PHONE option, you would enter your password, followed by a comma and then the word "phone".
    Example: if your password is Abc123, you would enter "Abc123,phone". This will call your selected device. You will need to answer the call, and push any button for approval.
  • Passcode - To use the PASSCODE option, you would enter your password, followed by a comma and then your given passcode.
    Example: if your password is Abc123, and your passcode is 654321 you would enter "Abc123,654321". This will take you directly in.
