Default value: "Enter a token or select one of the following options:\n\n 1. Starling Push\n 2. Phone
call\n 3. Send an SMS\n \nToken or option (1-3): "
This is the message that is initially displayed during a Starling authentication.
This prompt can span multiple lines, line separation is specified by adding \n to the prompt string.
