« Go Back

Information

 
Body

A login policy can be applied to all users in a LogMeIn Central account, including the account holder. This helps administrators better secure their Central account by managing password strength and two-factor authentication policies.

Only LogMeIn Central users with Login policy management permission can edit or enforce a login policy.

The policy is valid when logging in to LogMeIn.com, LogMeIn apps for iOS and Android, and the LogMeIn Client desktop app.

  1. In LogMeIn Central, click Users > Login Policy. The Login Policy page is displayed.
  2. Choose a policy for Password strength.
    OptionDescription
    StandardUse the default password strength setting:
    • At least six characters
    • No other requirements
    Strong Force users to create a robust password meeting the following requirements:
    • Seven characters or more
    • Made of capital letters, lowercase letters, and numbers
    • Changed every 90 days
    • Does not match the user's LogMeIn ID
    • Does not match any of the user's four most recent passwords
  3. Choose a policy for the Login process.
    OptionDescription
    StandardUsers verify their identity by entering a valid LogMeIn ID and password.
    Two-factor authenticationUsers must follow a two-step process to verify their identity. They can choose any method currently available for LogMeIn. The policy cannot force them to use a specific method. For details, see Two-Step Verification.
Upon next login, the policy is applied to all users in the account.
Tip: As a courtesy to your users, you may want to notify them when you apply policy changes. LogMeIn does not automatically notify users of policy changes. If users need assistance setting up two-step verification, direct them to this article.
Tip: In LogMeIn Central, if Two-factor authentication is enabled under Users > Login Policy by the Master Account Holder, the Login Policy does not allow you to save devices.
