Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here .
Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.
Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type myGov Access - code creator in the search bar and press Search. Click on myGov Access - code creatorapplication icon. A window of myGov Access - code creator on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.
Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use myGov Access - code creator for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: myGov Access creates a one-time access code which is used to sign in to my.gov.au. It replaces the SMS code or secret question and answer you usually use. myGov Access is ideal for people going overseas or where mobile reception is poor. The app creates a 6 digit code. Use the 6 digit code to sign in to my.gov.au. For your security, a new code is created every 30 seconds and is valid for maximum of 60 seconds. Once you’ve set up myGov Access, you’ll need to enter your username, password and the code created from myGov Access to sign in to my.gov.au. IMPORTANT: If you uninstall the app you may risk locking your myGov account. If you no longer want to use myGov Access you’ll need to sign in to my.gov.au, select Account Settings and turn off myGov Access from your Sign-in options. Re-installing myGov Access will not resolve your access issues. You can only use myGov Access with one myGov account and one mobile device. For more information about myGov sign in options go to my.gov.au.
