Duo Mobile now supports Dark Mode and iOS 13
Ratings and Reviews
Apple Watch push notifications not working with watchOS 6
Despite the updates to the Duo Mobile app for iOS 13 and watchOS 6 for functionality including dark mode, I no longer receive duplicates of the two factor authentication notifications to my watch. Thus I am no longer able to authorize login attempts from my Apple Watch since updating to watchOS 6. On my iPhone XS Max, I am still able to receive and authorize the two-factor authentication attempts albeit it is taking a few seconds longer to get the original Duo Mobile notifications compared with the prior weeks and months with iOS 12 and watchOS 5. Granted it is possible the performance differences may be due to the iOS and watchOS changes but I wouldn't expect those changes to prevent the watch from getting a mirrored copy of all of my iPhones Duo Mobile notifications.
A great option for 2FA
Seeing all the low ratings based on a business’ or university’s decision to apply additional security to their networks, I had to add my two cents. It is 2FA, not Duo, about which most are railing. If you don’t like 2FA, rid the world of hackers and thieves that will use every available means to get into any network they can. Until you accomplish that, accept the fact that for those trying to secure a network, 2FA is a necessary precaution, much like a deadbolt on a door. And Duo is a good method for applying 2FA. We primarily use Duo Push for accessing our systems and it works very well.
Unrelated note: Duo works much better than this rating system, which will tell you after the fact that a nickname has been used but won’t suggest one that hasn’t been...

Thank you for your review!
Love it - but Apple Watch app seems to have a bug
Edit - issue seems to have been fixed. Also, leaving the Duo app running in the background on the phone, which I hadn’t been doing before, helps.
I implemented the free tier of Duo to safeguard my personal VPN against unauthorized access. It works great and having an Apple Watch app is neat too. But recently, I noticed that my watch app wouldn’t generate passcodes anymore. Push notifications to the Watch still work. Restarting the watch seems to work once and then it won’t give codes anymore.
I couldn’t find a way to send feedback in the app itself, so I decided to leave a review. Hope this minor bug can be ironed out so I can get back to enjoying that extra convenience!

Thank you for letting us know. I will share this with our development team.
Update: One of our team members indicated that it can sometimes take several moments to generate a code on the watch. Can you please try to generate a code, wait several moments, and let us know if that works?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
