Secure the configuration

Published by eKeypad on

Mobile devices can easily be lost or stolen. To help protect your system from unauthorized access eKeypad has several security features that can help.

One of these is a setting to require authentication every time the configuration screen is opened.

You have the choice of configuring either a numeric code or a pattern drawn on a grid of dots. Numeric pass codes must have a minimum length of 4 digits but have no maximum length. Pattern codes must pass through at least 4 dots and have a limit of 9 dots.

Once setup, the configuration pass code can not be recovered. The only way to resolve a lost code is to completely wipe the eKeypad configuration. This can be performed directly on the login screen. To help prevent unnecessary issues, you can provide an optional hint for the pass code.

To configure a configuration pass code:

  1. Open eKeypad and navigate to the configuration screens
  2. Touch on the link labeled, “Installer Menu” in the client settings section.
  3. Turning the “Login at Config” toggle to ON will automatically display the pass code setup wizard.
  4. Turning this toggle to OFF will disable any pass codes that are setup
