10 Digit Security String Generated by PINsafe

How does PINsafe® work?

Each user is issued a PIN number – however, this exact PIN is never typed in.

When a user needs to securely authenticate, they’re sent a 10-digit security string – a random sequence of characters or numbers. The security string can be displayed as a graphic (TURing, PINpad® or PICpad) or sent via email or through SMS verification.

By using the PIN as a positional indicator, a one-time code for authentication can be extracted.

Can you show me an example?

The example above shows your PIN is 1370. On this occasion the security string is 5721694380, so your login code is 5240.

The security string can be integrated with many devices and applications, in a variety of ways for complete flexibility. Including:

– Logging into Windows
– Remote access with F5, Citrix Netscaler and Cisco VPN
– Web access with OWA, Apache, and Microsoft ILS
