I really need some help!!!
I’m trying to create a new account for my wife, but the mobile app fails at step 2 “create an account to continue”. I get a blank screen (white) with “eversafe.id.telus.com” at the top and can't continue further. The same thing happens with the desktop (chromebook). I picked up a PM SIM card from Telus that hasn’t been activated yet. My wifes phone was with Bell but that account is no longer active. I am using my phone which is with PM to create the new account. I have installed the app multiple times with no success.
The steps I am taking on the app are as follows:
At this point I get the white screen and can’t continue further.
I am able to log into the Community and my Self Serve accounts without issue. Does it matter that I’m using a phone with a PM SIM? I can’t really see how this would make any difference. I’ve also installed the app on my wifes phone and inserted my SIM, with the same results. I foolishly scheduled a specific deactivation time with Bell, but they got pissy and shutdown my service immediatley.
Any help would be greatly, greatly, appreciated.
hey did you get any resolve for your issues? I am having the same ones and am about to throw the SIM card away and go somewhere else, lol. But seriously I am not super tech savvy and this has bee super frustrating to just get a # for my kid who is starting high school. I have been at it for hours!
Hey folks, wasn't sure how to add to my own post.
Anyway, me again. I was part way through creating a new account and made it as far as the Referral/ promo code section when the session timed out. Now any attempt to login PM says previously created “eversafe” email/ password don’t match. Any attempt to continue account setup says the email address is already in use. The system did try to continue account setup but kept rejecting emailed security codes. Checked credit and no transaction is pending.
Does anybody have suggestions as to how to proceed?
Thanks in advance!!!
Hello @111triple , Chromebook is fine with Chrome browser. See clear cache and cookies link/instructions above. See link below for help with creation of new account.

Creating an EverSafe ID:
Hi hTideGnow, please re-read my original post. When I say failed at the beginning, I can't get past "create new account" because the app stalls at the eversafe 2 part authentication. Is there a way that I can setup "eversafe" in advance of creating the new account? Because I think that is the issue. Thanks for your help!
Hello @111triple , I don't think the issue is with having the PM SIM installed on your phone. I think this is a browser cache and cookies issue (browser remembers your sessions checking your own online account (MyAccount) and/or Community profile). My suggestion would be to use a PC and start the new EverSafe ID/account creation for your wife there. Then, once you create the account there, clear cache and cookies on your phone, and then log into the app with the new account info you created on your PC. Better yet, download and install the app over wi-fi on your wife's phone, and continue activation in the app on her phone. From there, you'll get prompted to continue the activation in the app. I've included some links below to assist:

Hope this helps.
Your phone probably has a default browser which could be different from your preferred browser. On the default browser, clear cache and cookies.
Maybe don't put your sim in your wifes phone (lol sounds naughty) when trying that side. Another maybe is ...wait... the systems can be painfully slow.
It would seem then that your wife has lost her Bell number. Happy wife eh?
