Using Duo Multi-Factor Authentication with Google Drive File Stream

Google Drive File Stream is an application that can be installed on your personal or UNI owned and managed computer to stream your Google Drive content to your local device for quick access to frequently used documents and sheets. After the Duo Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) system was placed in front of UNI's suite of Google Tools, Drive File Stream can have a bug in the sign-in process preventing users from seeing the necessary Duo MFA prompt. To successfully login, make sure to click the Sign in with your browser instead option. This will open your primary web browser and bring you to the CatID login screen and allow proper use of the Duo MFA system.
