*Note: the 6-digit code is valid for a period of time, which coincides with the time it takes for the dial to change from white to blue. You must enter this code before this time expires. If you do not do so, the application will generate a new code, for another limited period of time, which you will have to enter in the text field in the image above, and then click “Validate”.

If everything has been done correctly, the system will color the OTP data blue, and will indicate in the “Status” column that the OTP has been “Activated”.
