Step 1: At the Duo prompt, please click on Enter a Passcode
Step 2: At the bottom right corner of the window, click on Text me new codes
Step 3: A one-time passcode is sent to your registered phone number via SMS text messaging. Enter the passcode and click on Log In. A one-time passcode cannot be re-used.
