# Create User Secret
You must have a PIN to generate a User Secret. You can create the User Secret PIN using the create_user_secret_pin endpoint.
This endpoint creates a User Secret for a given account. A User Secret is a 64 characters long unique string of numbers and letters. A User Secret is associated with a specific user - the user for whom the User Secret is created.
The User Secret is displayed only once. It is not stored in the system, and it cannot be retrieved. Keep your User Secret stored in a secure place. If you lose your User Secret, you will need to start the User Secret generation process from the beginning.
The operation "create_user_secret" is available to all users. It does not require any authentication.
