Stars PIN: Explanation

A Stars PIN is a six-digit number that is issued by us, in addition to your password. Once a Stars PIN is set for your Stars Account, you will be required to enter your Stars PIN number on an on-screen keypad, every time you log in.

Each time you try to log in to your Stars Account, the numbers will change position. That will stop most keyloggers from recording what buttons you select and help to protect the security of your account.

The use of the Stars PIN also enhances your account security by providing an additional validation number, which would prevent you from being exposed to certain types of "phishing" and "social engineering" scams.

You can enable the Stars PIN on your account using the instructions below:

  • Account
  • Settings
  • Stars PIN
  • Enable Stars PIN
  1. Settings
  2. Account Details
  3. Stars PIN

Tap on the menu (Android) or More (iOS) then follow these steps:

  1. Settings & Tools
  2. Login Security Settings
  3. Stars PIN
  4. Enable Stars PIN
