It's about the size of a car key fob, and can be attached to a key ring.  The token has a button and a 6-digit display.  You press the button to generate a 6-digit number that can be typed in to the Duo login screen to confirm your login. A token does not require cellular or wifi access.

Notes:

  • An ONID account can have no more than one Duo hardware token associated with it
  • A Duo hardware token can have no more than one ONID account associated with it (i.e., Duo hardware tokens cannot be shared)
  • Alternatively, you may use a security key such as a Yubikey
