How to password-protect access to the application management functions
October 3, 2023
A single computer may be shared by several users with various levels of experience and computer literacy. Unrestricted access of different users to the application and its settings may compromise the level of computer security.
To restrict access to the application, you can define an administrator password for the
KLAdmin account. This user has unlimited rights to manage and modify the settings of the application, and to assign application access permissions to other users. After you create a password for
KLAdmin, you can assign application access permissions to various users or groups of users.
To create a
KLAdmin administrator password:
- Open the main application window.
- Click in the lower part of the main window.
This opens the Settings window.
- Select the Interface settings section.
- Switch the Password protection toggle to On.
- In the opened window, fill in the User name (KLAdmin is recommended), Enter password and Confirm password fields.
Tips on creating a strong password:
- The password must contain at least eight and no more than 128 characters.
- The password contains at least one number.
- The password contains both lowercase and uppercase letters.
- The password must contain at least one special character (for example: ! @ # $ % ^ & *).
- Click the Save button.
A forgotten password cannot be recovered. If you have forgotten your password, contact Customer Service to recover access to the application settings.
KLAdmin can assign permissions to the following users and user groups:
Everyoneuser group. This group includes all users of the operating system. If you grant this group permission to perform a particular action, then group users will always be allowed to perform this action, even if a specific user or a user group belonging to the
Everyoneuser group does not have individual permission to perform the action. By default, members of the
Everyonegroup are not allowed to perform any actions.
<system user>. By default, the selected user is not allowed to perform any actions. This means that when you try to perform a prohibited action, you will be prompted to enter your
When you try to perform any action from the list in the Add permissions for a user or a group window, the application will ask you to enter a password. In the password window, enter the username and password for the current user account. The action will be executed if the specified account has permission to perform this action. In the password window, you can specify the time interval during which the user will not have to reenter the password.
In the password window, you can switch the input language only by pressing ALT+SHIFT. Any other shortcuts will not switch the input language, even if that shortcut is configured in the operating system.
