You can enable an additional option to protect a user account from unauthorized modification. If this option is enabled, modifying user account settings requires authorization of the user with the rights for modification.

To enable or disable account protection from unauthorized modification:

  1. In the main menu, go to Users & rolesUsers.
  2. Click the name of the internal user account for which you want to specify account protection from unauthorized modification.
  3. In the user settings window that opens, select the Account protection tab.
  4. On the Account protection tab, select the Request authentication to check the permission to modify user accounts option, if you want to request credentials every time when account settings are changed or modified. Otherwise, select the Allow users to modify this account without additional authentication option.
  5. Click the Save button.

Account protection from unauthorized modification is enabled for a user account.
