The university recommends that you use the Toopher application in conjunction with a smart phone.
If you can't or don't want to use the application on a smart phone, you may also use a mobile phone via SMS (Text Messaging).
If you can't or don't want to use a cell phone with Toopher, you can alternately use a printed, pre-generated list of One-Time Passwords (OTP).
The university recommends that you use the Duo Security application in conjunction with a smart phone or tablet. Duo is available on Apple, Android, Blackberry and Windows smart phones and tablets. While not officially supported, there are legacy versions of Duo for Palm, Windows Mobile, and J2ME/Symbian phones.
If you can't or don't want to use the application on a smart phone or tablet, you may also use a mobile phone via SMS (Text Messaging), or a cell phone or land line phone via voice.
If none of the above options are viable, you can obtain a hardware token device to use with Duo.
In addition, Duo allows you to use multiple devices. So you can use it with two smart phones, or with both a smart phone and your land line, for example.
