Boilerkey Backup Codes


  • Go to https://www.purdue.edu/apps/account/BoilerKeySelfServe, sign in, and click “Obtain lists of one-time use backup codes.”
  • Once you have the codes, print them out and store them somewhere secure, such as your wallet or a locked drawer.
  • When you are without your hardware token or smartphone, you can use these 9-digit codes in place of “push” or the generated code from the token or app. Example: “0000,123456789”
