Generating a support PIN
Before you create a support ticket, it is a good idea to renew your support PIN. A support PIN is a temporary access code that will allow our support agent to access your dashboard without requiring your username and password.
Teramind Support will never ask for your username and password. If Teramind Support needs to access your account to assist you with a support inquiry, we will always ask your permission, and we will ask you to give us access by sending us this PIN number.
The PIN is onetime use only and will automatically expire after the first use. As a best practice, you should renew the PIN each time you request our agent(s) to access your dashboard and clear it once they are done.
You can create/edit/mange support pins from the My Account > SUPPORT PIN tab:
1. Click MY ACCOUNT then click the SUPPORT PIN tab:
2. Click the RENEW button to generate a new support PIN.
3. Click the COPY button to copy the PIN to the clipboard (so that you can paste it in a message).
4. Click the CLEAR button to clear the support PIN. The agent(s) will not be able to access the dashboard if you clear the PIN.
