After enrolling a mobile device using the enrollment email sent to your McDaniel email, be sure to turn on iCloud Keychain (for iOS users) or turn on Google Drive backup (for Android users). This ensures that all users are able to recover their Duo Mobile account to a new device or after a mobile operating system restore.
