As a reward for using a Security Key, we'll give you 100 Complimentary Cartel Coins each month, and you'll have access to the Security Key Vendor in-game. 

There are two types of SW:TOR Security Keys

  • The Mobile Security Key for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and certain Android devices.
The Mobile Security Key app for Android and iOS was updated in June 2015. All instructions in this article apply to the latest version of the app. 
  • The Physical Security Key came free with the Collector’s Edition of Star Wars™: The Old Republic™, and was also available for purchase online, or through select retail partners.

We're not selling the physical Security Key anymore, but if you already have one, you can still use it.

  • Physical Security Keys have a printed serial number on the back.
  • Mobile Security Keys have a serial number assigned when they’re linked to an account.
    • The serial number for the current mobile app is only available during setup, so copy it down and keep it somewhere safe.
    • If you’re using an older version of the mobile Security Key, you can find the serial number in the app: Tap the Information icon, then Security Key Information and you’ll find it under Serial number.
