A new name for the myGov Access app

25 November 2019

The app is now called myGov Code Generator.

If you haven’t previously used the app, it creates codes for myGov.  This is why we’re calling it the myGov Code Generator app.  You can use these codes instead of SMS codes or secret questions when you sign in to your myGov account.

Keep in mind, you can’t sign in to your myGov account through the app. You still need to go to the myGov website.

Use this app if you either:

  • can’t get SMS codes sent to your mobile phone
  • are travelling overseas.

If you already use the myGov Access app, your app will update to the myGov Code Generator. The name and icon are new. The app looks slightly different, but it still works the same way.
