    Abstract: A terminal includes a relay unit, a memory, and an access unit. The relay unit relays communication between a different terminal and a server that requires two-step authentication at a time of providing a service. The memory stores first identification information for identifying the different terminal. The access unit accesses the server. In a case where data to be transmitted to the server includes second identification information for identifying the terminal, the access unit transmits the first identification information, in place of the second identification information included in the data, to the server.
