Can I use Georgia Tech Two-Factor Authentication if I'm out of the country?


  • You can use Duo Push authentication option from anywhere, as long as you can connect to the Internet. 
  • If you are in a location where you don't have Internet access, you can use a passcode that is generated in the Duo-Mobile App.
  • You can use one of the 10 back up codes that you can generate and print from the Passport.
  • You can use the Hardware token.  If you are a Georgia Tech employee, please consult with your IT Support staff for hardware token. Employees & students may purchase a Blue Duo Token for $22 from the BuzzCard Center on the second floor of the Georgia Tech Bookstore (Barnes & Noble).
