The usage of Hardware Token
Old Hardware Token
(Type: DP250 & DP300)
Only one Hardware Token can be activated to one user ID. As a consequence, if a user activates a new Hardware Token, the old one automatically becomes deactivated and cannot be used for login or authorization of transactions.
After successful activation, the Internet Banking system accepts the One Time Password – consisting of 6 numbers – generated by the Token, in order to authorise banking orders.
To generate One Time Password, the user needs to login to the Token with a PIN, then generate a token code of 6 numbers which is valid only for 30 seconds.
New Hardware Token
Two types of token codes can be generated by the new Hardware Token: „Password” and „Signature”. Any time the user initiates a banking order, eBanking informs the user about which one is needed.
- The „Password” option should be used for login and non-payment transactions. After generating a „Password” the process is the same as with the old Hardware Token.
- The „Signature” option should be used for signing payment orders. Data of the transaction need to be entered in the token (beneficiary IBAN and amount of transaction) before it would generate a One Time Password – consisting of 6 numbers – to sign the order. After this, the process is the same as with the old Hardware Token.
You can find a detailed manual about the new Hardware Token here.
We would like to recommend you to change from Hardware Token to mToken. The mToken is the own digital token of the UniCredit Bank which is available in the UniCredit Mobile app. It is easy to generate One Time Password for login and payment transactions in the eBanking. In case you would like to change from Hardware Token for mToken, Please call our Telephone Banking service – phone number: +36 (1/20/30/70) 325 32 00 – or visit any of our branches.
