New features, enhancements, and other improvements

Expanded custom branding capabilities now generally available for Duo Universal Prompt, Duo Single Sign-On, and Duo Passwordless

  • Added additional customization options for the Duo Universal Prompt, Duo Single Sign-On, and Duo Passwordless experiences for Duo MFA, Access, and Beyond edition customers. Options include a background image, a logo, and an accent color. Note that the Duo Universal Prompt and Duo Passwordless are currently in public preview ahead of general availability; Duo Single Sign-On is GA. In order to test the expanded branding capabilities, you will need to use at least one of these three features.
  • The traditional Duo Prompt will continue to support a logo as in the past. Updating the logo on the new Custom Branding configuration section of the Settings page will apply those updates to all existing integrations using a web-based Duo prompt (either the traditional prompt or the Universal Prompt). However, none of the custom branding options has any effect on the end-user experience for applications that do not show the Duo prompt in a browser, such as Duo Authentication for Windows Logon or Duo Unix.
  • The custom branding configuration page is located in the Duo Admin Panel under Settings > Custom Branding. To test your custom branding implementation before publishing to all users, select the “Test with some users” option and add usernames to view the draft branding selections.
  • Custom branding can also be configured via the Duo Admin API using the /admin/v1/branding endpoint.
  • For more information about how to configure custom branding, refer to our documentation.

Streamlined security key registration process for web-based Duo prompts

  • When registering a security key for use as a Duo authentication factor, users will no longer see the prompt “Allow this site to see your security key?” in either the traditional web-based Duo Prompt or the new Duo Universal Prompt, which is currently in public preview.


Duo Universal Prompt now supports longer passcodes for Yubikey OTP

  • You can now use a 32-character passcode when authenticating to the Universal Prompt with a Yubikey one-time passcode.

Updated in-product labels to reflect new name for Cisco AMP for Endpoints

  • Duo Admin Panel text that references Cisco AMP for Endpoints has been updated to reflect the product’s new name of Cisco Secure Endpoint.
