Log in from a computer using the app

You do not always have to use your mobile device to log in to a website.

Use the device you prefer. It can be a computer, laptop, or a mobile device. You'll just use the app to prove who you are when you log in.

For example, you can use a:

  • Laptop + your mobile device with the app
  • iPadyour mobile device with the app
  • Shared computer (like at a library) + your mobile device with the app
  • Work computer + your personal mobile device with the app
     

Pair device with device with app


There are two ways to log in from a computer using the app:

 


Enter a pairing code in the app

Step 1: Go to the website you want to log in to

Start on the device you want to use and open a browser, such as Safari or Chrome.

Go to a website that accepts BC Services Card Login.

Choose to log in with BC Services Card.

Step 2: Choose to use the app

Step 3: Get a pairing code

You'll only use it once. You do not need to remember it.

Step 1 Get Code

Step 4: Enter the pairing code 

Open the app on your mobile device. Enter the pairing code and confirm you want to log in.

Step 5: Choose if you want to skip pairing next time 

If you're going to use the same computer again, choose to use a push notification to log in next time. It's a faster way to log in.

Give your device a name. This name shows as an option next time you log in. When you select it, you'll receive a notification on that device.

You'll only see this option if you've enabled notifications in the BC Services Card app. We need it to send a push notification to your mobile device.
