This page outlines the steps required to enable Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) for the Pulse Secure VPN.


  • A smart phone with the Duo mobile app downloaded.

Enabling MFA Authentication

  1. Visit and login.
  2. Click "Start setup" to begin the Duo setup for your account. The remaining steps assume you are using a mobile phone as your other factor.
  3. Select Mobile phone and click Continue.
  4. Enter your phone number and tick the checkbox to verify it was properly entered. Click Continue.
  5. Click either "Call me" or "Text me" and you will receive a 6-digit code for verification. Enter the code, click Verify, and click Continue.
  6. Towards the end of the setup after you have verified your mobile phone, select "Automatically send this device a Duo push" and Save.

Setting up the VPN Profile

  1. In your Pulse Secure client on your laptop or other off-site machine, create a new profile specifying as the URL and then click Connect.
  2. Enter your UMIACS credentials for the first authentication box and tick "Save settings".
  3. Type `push` into the password field on the second authentication box, tick "Save settings", and then click Connect. You should then receive a push to your mobile device to complete authentication. This will occur every time you connect to the VPN going forward.
