LEA 2-Step: Security Beyond the Password

LEA 2-Step Header

LEA 2-Step for All Applications

Starting Sept 20th, 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 users.

Employees (Faculty and Staff) are already using LEA 2-step and are not impacted by this change.

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.

My phone or tablet no longer receives LU email / I am getting an "account blocked error", on my phone or tablet.

LEA2Step introduces modern authentication requirements for email login. This change affects phones and tablets that were previously configured with legacy protocols and may stop getting LU Emails. To fix this, you may need to remove and re-add your account to your phone or tablet. For step-by-step instructions, please visit the following link:
