Does Duo have plans to support Number Matching MFA prompts?

We are starting to deploy some Azure resources and we are evaluating whether we should keep Duo MFA or switch to Microsoft Authenticator. While Duo feels more user-friendly, there is one feature Microsoft has that I wish Duo did: Number Matching. Basically, for first-time or risky logins it displays a number on the web browser’s login screen which the user has to enter in their MFA app. This guarantees that they don’t accidentally approve an unrequested MFA prompt from muscle memory.

Hi @StoopidMonkey, thanks for your interest in Duo and for sharing your question here. While I can’t share details at this time, the Duo team is actively exploring ways to reduce push fraud, and there is an existing feature request for this functionality with a lot of customer support. I encourage you to ask your Duo sales representative for more information, as they may be able to share more details with you than I can in our public forum.

I am interested on this topic also.

Any update on this feature? Definitely interested in implementing number matching.

Take a look at our public preview of verified Duo Push; available now to Duo MFA, Access, and Beyond plan customers.

@DuoKristina Are there any plans to allow the verification number length to be configuired? Rather than 6 digits, 2?

Hi Rajeev,

Duo decided to start by providing the maximum level of security by requiring a six digit code. We believe two digits with only 100 permutations allows for an unacceptable level of risk for the majority of our customers.

We appreciate the feedback here and are evaluating allowing configurability as to the # of digits shown to allow for different risk tolerances. If you would like to be part of that development reach out to your Duo representative and we would love to show you what we’re working on.
