MAG Application Access FAQs

Application not Accessible

If you are logged into your MAG account, but cannot access certain partner applications, it might be due to these common issues:

In these scenarios, the status of your applications will read Login Requirements not Met. Review the sections below to learn how to troubleshoot these common access issues.

Activate Your Credential 

How can I activate my credential?

 Click here to view the answer.

You might not be able to access your partner application because your credential needs to be activated. Specifically, this applies to such credentials as Phone OTP, OTP Hardware Token, and Exostar Mobile ID. Activation ensures your credential is attached to a specific MAG account. To activate your purchased credential:

Step 1.  Log into into your MAG account, and navigate to the My Account tab.

Step 2.  Click the Manage OTP sub-tab.

Step 3.  Click Purchase/Register link. You are redirected to the Credentialing page.

Step 4. Select the Get/Activate credentials radio button.

Step 5. Click the hyperlinked I have a license key, enter the license key, and click Activate. Follow the prompts to complete the activation and to register a phone number to your MAG account.

If you do not have a credential, and want to purchase at this time, click Continue instead of I have a license key. Follow the prompts to complete the purchase and activation of your credential.

How do I purchase or upgrade my current credential?

 Click here to view the answer.

If you cannot access your application, and receive the Login Requirements Not Met message, double-check with your partner to see what kind of credential they require for the access to your specific application. If you need a stronger credential or an upgrade to your credential in the form of Identity Proofing, follow the steps below to complete your purchase:

Step 1.  Log into your MAG account, and navigate to the My Account tab.

Step 2. Click the Manage OTP tab, and select the purchasing option that addresses your credentialing situation. Scroll down and use the available buttons to either purchase a new credential, or add the proofing upgrade to your active credential.

Alternatively, you can also access the Exostar Webstore by clicking the Billing and Support link, located in the upper right corner in your MAG account. Locate the desired credential, and follow the prompts to complete your purchase. We suggest using this option if the buttons under the Manage OTP sub-tab are temporarily unavailable.

Renew Expired Credential
