The e-mail will list the users and the token numbers that are expiring, along with instructions for the Account Holder Representative to ensure the smooth transition to a new Teranet Token.
I have a Teranet Soft Token. Do I have to renew it this year?
No, Teraview users who have a soft token on their smartphone do not have to take any action at this time.
How much does it cost to renew a Teranet Hard Token?
The cost is $50.00 + HST for each hard token. The total fee(s) for any Teranet Hard Tokens will be debited from your Teraview Deposit Account
Note: there is no cost for switching to a soft token.
Why should I switch to a Teranet Soft Token?
A soft token is the most convenient option for your authentication needs. Soft tokens are also free, easy to use, and can be transferred between devices, as needed. Soft tokens also have a longer expiry date compared to hard tokens: 14 years for a soft token vs. five years for a hard token. Teraview users who require a token to sign documents are encouraged to select the soft token option for this purpose.
