  • Familiarize yourself with the 'Terms to Remember' on the RSA Support Main page.
  • You must have an active e-mail account on your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch.
  • You have already received the e-mail from '' containing your 'token seed file'.
  • Be sure your clicked the 'Activation Link' in that e-mail. Your (soft) token will remain disabled until you clicked that link.
  • You MUST have an iTunes App Store account.
  • You have access to a PC with internet access.
    • You need to set a PIN code before you can use RSA SecurID to generate a 'Passcode' to access the VPN. It is much easier to do this on a separate device (PC) than to be switching between the RSA App and Browser on your Apple IOS Device.
