How to login to the P2PE Manager

The P2PE Manager is where you will control the state of your devices.  The website is found at  Prior to your device being shipped, the Custodian (your company’s P2PE point person) of the P2PE device will have received a login to the P2PE Manager via email from Bluefin.  The subject of that email is Bluefin: P2PE POI Manager: Account Created

Enter your User Name and Password from the email in to the corresponding fields of the website.



How to Change Your Password

Once you login to the P2PE Manager we recommend you change your password.  To do this you will click on the profile link next to your name at the top right of the page.


Inside the change password area you will be able to review your information and make any update necessary as well as change your password.  Insert the password that was sent to you by Bluefin and create a new personalized password.

Receiving and Inspecting Your Shipment

1. At the top of the page click on the Shipments button.  On this page you will see all of the shipments that have been sent to you from Bluefin.
2. Click on the eye/view button on the left side of the shipment you would like to receive.


3. Click on the “Receive” button next to the device


4. Open the box but do not open the tamper bag. Your P2PE hardware will be wrapped in a tamper evident bag with a numbered tamper seal on the closure. You will need to input information from both the hardware unit and tamper seal into the P2PE Manager. Do not remove the device from the bag until after step 6.

5. Look through the bag to find the serial number on the device and tamper label number from the outside of the bag.

6. Enter the serial number and tamper label number into P2PE Manager and click “OK”.
Your device is now checked in and in the “Stored” state! Remove the device from the tamper bag and continue on to the next section if you are ready to activate your device.
