UW Digital ID (One-Time Password) - Replacing / Changing an OTP Token
This document will explain the process in replacing / changing an OTP token.
When to Change / Replace My Token
There are several scenarios where you will need to get in contact with your Local Registration Authority (LRA) to replace your OTP token in the system.
Your token is missing / stolen / broken / malfunctioning
You replaced / reinstalled your smartphone OR the OTP application
You want to switch to using your smart phone from a key fob, or vice versa
If you fall under one of these scenarios, you will need to visit an LRA to update your OTP information. You will also need to be credentialed before your OTP token information can be updated.
To find the closest LRA to your location and what to bring, please follow the instructions on this KB: 33434
Follow the instructions listed on the activation / assignment KB document: 32741. However, you will need to select Change Device instead of Activate Device.
Note: The token type will not change on the request, even if you've switched token types (e.g. smart phone to key fob or vice versa). This is a known issue on the application and will NOT have an effect on how the OTP token will operate.
If the old device was a key fob, collect the key fob from the customer. You may return broken key fobs to UW Digital ID Administration. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to determine where to send broken fobs.
