Pair devices to use a mobile card or an Android mobile device as a card reader to log in on a computer, laptop, or any other device. Pairing establishes a link between your mobile device and the browser on the other device.

How to Login with a Remembered Device 

When you choose to remember a device, you give it a name. Then next time you log in the name you chose is displayed as an option - for example "Card reader on my Samsung" or "Card on my iPhone". Remembering a pairing stores a cookie in your browser.
