Hardware Based One-Time Password (OTP Hardware) Token generates a single-use digital password code on a physical token. The OTP Hardware token is used in combination with your MAG user ID and password, and is required each time you log into your account to access applications that require 2FA. Using this 2-factor authentication (OTP Hardware + username and password) reduces the risk of unauthorized access to your account, and provides added security.
