Get Started With 2FA Checklist

Here are some quick checklists to make sure you complete all the steps when you:

Enrolling in 2FA (Current/Returning Mason Employees)

Before you use 2FA, you must first create your 2FA account and enroll at least one device through the Duo Enrollment process. To complete your enrollment, do the following:

Using 2FA with Web Applications

After completing enrollment, verify that you can access a 2FA-enabled application or service.

  • Test your 2FA:
    • If you are still logged into the application from initial enrollment, click the log out button.
    • Review the instructions on how to Use 2FA with Web Applications.
    • Navigate to the 2fa.gmu.edu home page, click the 2FA Account Login button, and follow the prompts to log in.
  • If you did not enroll a second device at initial enrollment, enroll an additional device now (e.g., office phone, home phone, tablet, etc.).

Using 2FA with Cisco AnyConnect VPN

After completing enrollment, verify that you can connect to the VPN using the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client.

  • Download and Install the Cisco AnyConnect client if you do not already have it on your computer.
  • Determine your VPN Group for when you log in to Cisco AnyConnect VPN.
    • When you connect to Cisco AnyConnect VPN you need to specify a VPN Group. Each VPN Group is set up for specific access.
