Once Duo Login is enabled you must use the smartphone app to complete your login. If Duo is unavailable (such as no internet access for example) you can use the offline mode to login.
This guide illustrates how to setup Duo offline access.
1-The first time you are logging into your PC with Duo you may need to enroll in offline access. This will allow you to log onto your PC if Duo is unavailable.
Choose “Duo Mobile Password” and then “Activate Now”.

4-The Duo app will now display the current one-time code.
On your computer click the “Enter Offline Code” button.
Enter the code displayed in the Duo app in your PC then click “Activate Offline Logon”.
