LEA 2-Step: Security Beyond the Password

LEA 2-Step Header

Password Reset

Starting June 7, 2021 all users who change their password through passwordreset.lamar.edu will be required to enter self-service security questions, answers, and LEA 2-Step device. This change does not affect users who have already entered self-service security questions and LEA 2-Step device. 

LEA 2-Step for All Applications

Starting July 9th, 2021 all Lamar University applications such as LU Email, LU Learn, Tech Support, and Cardinal Purch that use LEA will require a 2-step login when accessed off-campus for all employees.

What does that mean?

In 2018 LU released a second layer of security via Duo Mobile to some applications. We called this the LEA 2-Step. 

What do I have to do?

Before July 9th, 2021 visit Install Duo Mobile App for details on how to download the Duo Mobile App and Register your device. Don't have a cell phone? Visit Hardware Token Management, for more information.

Why is LEA 2-Step a good thing?

  • LEA 2-Step keeps your Email and information safer.
  • There is a “Remember Me” option that once checked, tells your device to remember you for 7 days. You will only have to approve a second authentication thru Duo Mobile once every 7 days.
  • Hate changing your password every 90-days? This new process will allow us to remove password expiration starting this November.
