Step 2. Complete Account Activation 

When you receive your account activation email, click Activate My Account.

  • Follow the prompts to create your password and setup security questions.

Step 3. Accept Terms and Conditions 

In order for users in your company to access partner applications, the Organization Administrator or Application Administrator must accept Terms and Conditions for each application. Please note Application Administrators can only accept Terms and Conditions for applications they administer.

  • After setting up your password and security questions, you are redirected to the MAG dashboard.
  • Under My Applications,  applications your organization is subscribed to displays, click Agree to Terms to accept the term and conditions for that application.
  • Click Continue to review the terms and conditions, and check the “I have read and agree to these terms and conditions” box.
  • You receive a confirmation message. Click Go to Dashboard, to begin using the application.

Watch our "How-To" Video to learn how to complete your MAG Account Activation and to accept Terms and Conditions for partner applications.

Step 4. Purchase and Activate Credentials 

Most applications behind MAG require a stronger security level than conventional username and password.  Two-factor authentication (2FA) helps your partner ensure you are the only person who can access your account, even if someone knows your password.  If your partner application requires 2FA and your credentials are not sponsored by your partner, you must purchase applicable credentials.  Please note your partner might use the term Phone One-Time Password (OTP) instead of 2FA. OTP is a type of 2FA.

If you are doing business with multiple partner organizations and have a registered credential, you may not need to purchase additional credentials.  The credential type depends on what the partner set for their application to accept.  If you are unsure what credential to purchase, please contact Exostar Customer Support.  EAG or third-party credential (CAC, PIV, NGC One Badge, Canada DND PKI Smart Card) users are not required to complete a purchase and can bind existing credentials to a MAG user account.

Pick your credential type below if you are ready to activate your 2FA credential:

Watch our "How-To" Video to learn how to purchase and activate your credential, and to preview the identity proofing process.

For additional information, review the MAG Credentialing and MAG Credentialing FAQs page

Step 5. Access Applications 

Login to your MAG account with your email address or username, password, and activated credential (if required).  Applications your organization is subscribed to can be accessed from the Home tab of your MAG account.
