Use the Admin Console to generate a key (Settings → Keys → Auth Key), and then use that key to authenticate the device.

thankyou sir now i have generated the key how do i implement this on the other device sir ? and is there any way to turn off expiuration time of 90days

It would be a good idea for you to read some of the Tailscale documentation; the method for disabling key expiration is in there :slight_smile:

What sort of ‘device’ are you trying to authorize?

Again, it’s important to know what type of ‘device’ you are referring to. The authorization process differs between them.

Android phone it is sir

Ahh, then a precreated key isn’t an option for authentication. As far as I’m aware the only way to authenticate an Android device is via QR code, via sharing the Tailnet’s credentials (which you don’t want to do and that’s logical), or by sharing a node with another Tailscale user (if they’ve created their own Tailscale account - Sharing your nodes with other users · Tailscale).
