A. Nox App . OR

Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.

App Reviews

  • Needs a feature

    By Rerererererrer
    So far I love the app but what it really needs is to cycle the codes Every 30 seconds automatically just like Google Authenticator because without that it doesn’t really seem that secure in that kind of concerns me because usually you would expect an authenticator to cycle through codes every 30 seconds automatically but without The future you have to cycle through codes manually which I don’t like at all And I’m referring to all versions of authenticators meaning all things you use Duo Mobile for should have a 30 second authenticator countdown and then refresh and I’m generally Referring to native accounts having the 30 second refresh on codes
  • Got It Working on Apple Watch 4

    By McGlu
    Have used Duo Mobile at work for ages. Just got an Apple Watch 4 and was looking forward to not having to take my phone out of my pocket every time I need to Accept. Unfortunately, it won’t install on my new Watch. Installer just spins and spins. Maybe it’s due to the Watch 4 being so new. Will update review if it ever works. Update: I figured out that if I offload the app without deleting any data and reinstall, I can now install it to my Watch. Problem solved.
  • Works as advertised!

    By jgummersall
    This app has served me perfectly for well over a year. Unlike the Google Authenticator app, this app backs up data to iCloud in a way that is tied to the device and cannot be recovered to another device. This is a huge time saver if you ever have to restore your phone and don’t want to reconfigure all your OTP entries. The UX works well and I’ve never had a problem with the generated codes. Highly recommended!
  • If I could give zero stars I would

    By Sarah E Johnson
    I had to get the app because MSU went to a 2fa. Had no idea what it was before, was just told if I didn’t get it my accounts would be held and I would not be able to sign up for classes. Well I have it. The app is such a headache and some of the passcodes don’t even work. If you don’t have your phone on you when you need to log in during class you’re out of luck. Make an option for windows computer so I can sign in from my computer and not carry around a second device constantly. I can’t wait to graduate just to get rid of it.
  • I blame my employer

    By Fleetsaver
    I do not like that my employer switched to a commercial 2 factor authentication system that requires access to my personal devices. I don't use any cloud-based services for my phone, because I have account information and passwords stored on it. Duo is providing a “service” that constitutes the principal risk to my personal data security, and no amount of reassurances will convince me that giving a cloud-based private company access to my device is secure.
  • Solid 2FA 👍

    By rad-livinski
    Overall, 100% appreciate the straightforward layout. No extra nonsense - thank you! I would love to have the ability to condense the row height. Duo is my goto 2FA, so naturally the scroll is getting rather long. Thanks for your work!
  • Great app, push notification for approval

    By mlo1088
    I use this app for work and personal stuff. The Duo push is a great feature and works very well on Apple Watch too.
  • Fantastic!

    By rockpenguins
    For MFA time based codes this app is one of the best I’ve used so far. UI is very useable and easy to use and for the services that use Duo Push it’s even easier.
  • iPhone upgrade breaks all keys

    By Chuck Burr
    Duo works fine until you upgrade or change your iPhone. After you load the backup of your old iPhone to your new one, every single key is broken because it’s tied to the device. Now I’m locked out of everything, this app is a total nightmare when you change phones.
  • I’m locked out of my accounts!

    By aasen1776
    I switched phones because my old one broke, and I can’t get authorization codes because I have to reconnect to my accounts. In order to do so I have to sign on to my accounts, but I can’t sign on without authorization codes!!! Please help I have a lot of money on an exchange account that I can’t sign on to!!
