Credential Requirement 

If the application requires a credential, log into your Exostar MAG or SAM account with it. You receive a Login Requirements Not Met message when accessing applications secured behind MAG that require an OTP credential and you have not logged in with your registered credential.


Determine Credential Strength

Once you log into your MAG or SAM, account the credential strength (located in the upper, right hand corner of the page) displays Exostar Mobile IDPhone OTP or OTP Hardware depending on what credential you logged in with.


Elevate Credential

If you registered your credential and did not enter the OTP code during MAG login:

Step 1. Go to the My Account tab in MAG.

Step 2. Click the Manage OTP sub-tab.

Step 3. From the Manage OTP section of the page, click Elevate.

Step 4. Follow the steps to complete login.

Step 5. The credential strength (located in the upper, right hand corner of the page) transitions from username and password, to the registered OTP credential type (e.g. Exostar Mobile ID, Phone OTP or OTP Hardware).

If your token battery dies and your purchase is outside of the 45 day warranty period, you must purchase a new token. Please note the battery should last for a period of three to five years, depending on the number of times you use your token.
