Where can I find the serial number of my Security Key?

For the Physical Security Key, the serial number is visible on the back of the security key.

For the Mobile Security Key, the serial number is assigned to you when you set up your mobile security key. To view it, launch the app, click the “Information” icon, click “Security Key Information” and the number will be listed under “Serial number”.


On my iphone it goes when I launch the app it goes straight to asking me for this 7 digit code. How can this be done?

That's not the security key in question. You find the security key and serial the app wants in your account info on the SWTOR website, under "Security Key". Until you associate a key, the needed numbers will be displayed there.

Just to be clear, having a security key is NOT required to "PLAY THE FRACKING GAME!" It is entirely optional.

Hmmm... I've already associated my acount with the physical security key that came with the game. Now those numbers are not displayed on my account. I'd much rather have the mobile security app associated with my account because I'm less likely to lose it. Is there a way to add the mobile app or at least change it?

Add, no. Change, yes. You will need to call (not email) support to have them do it. Make sure they understand that you're not just removing the physical key, that you also want to add the app instead, and keep them on the line until you know that has worked successfully. Will save you a call back and sitting in the insanely long hold queue again.

I go into my account, select security key - no option to setup mobile security key, so no displayed serial number or activation code.

I launch the app (on HTC EVO) no information link at all, only area to enter serial number and activation code.

So now that I am in this little circle of going to the site to associate my mobile app to get sent to the app to get sent the site to get sent to the app to get sent to the site.......


Help.

It DOES work. You just have to be a subscriber. Not a free to play or a preferred. You must be a subscriber. I had no issue setting it up.
