CauseYour On-Demand Authentication (ODA) PIN is different from the PIN on your RSA SecurID hardware or software token, and would have been set up at the time that you registered for your RSA Link account. For more information, refer to the following article: Why am I being asked to provide an On-Demand Authentication (ODA) PIN when logging in to RSA Link?
ResolutionWhen prompted for your On-Demand Authentication PIN, enter the PIN that you created when first registering for your RSA Link account.  You will then receive a text message (SMS) with a tokencode that you will be prompted to enter, at which point you will be successfully authenticated.
NotesYou can reset your On-Demand Authentication (ODA) PIN by following the instructions in the following article:  How do I reset the On-Demand Authentication (ODA) PIN for my RSA Link account?

If you do not remember your PIN then contact RSA Customer Support for assistance in order for them to reset it for you.
