What is security pin in JEE Main? is the top query of the day by JEE Main 2020 candidates. A number of candidates have been asking this question since the result of JEE Main 2020 was announced yesterday. Here is the simple answer to your question. And also, since a lot of candidates are asking what they should do if they have forgotten it, or cannot see, the answers to those are also here.
What is security pin in JEE Main?
To answer your question, the security pin in JEE Main is a set of 6 random characters, comprising of only alphabets and numbers, that appear on your screen as a part of the login form.
When you go to the login page to check JEE Main 2020 result, you have to enter 3 things
- Your application number
- Your date of birth
- Security pin that appears on the page
Now this security pin is randomly generated by the website server. It is not something that you have to remember. And it changes everytime you refresh the page.
It is one of the ways a website uses to ensure that robots (bots) do not attempt to login. So it is a security feature of the login page.
Now many candidates are also asking this question:
I have forgotten the security pin! What do I do?
You do not have to remember the security pin. You have not been assigned any permanent security pin. This data changes every time the page refreshes. You simply have to enter the security pin that is appearing on the page.
Which brings us to your next question:
The security pin section is showing blank… What now?
Yes, this is a common problem. Do not panic as this is simply a server issue or internet problem.
Sometimes when there is too much traffic on the website or your internet is slow the security pin does not load. So if you are facing this issue, then please try in 5-10 minutes time.
