How to set an admin password



What is an admin password?

By default, the main menu of the iface reader can be accessed by any user. In practice, it is recommended that you assign one or more admin users who will manage the settings of the reader and handle the enrollment of new users. This provides a much greater level of security to the system, as only the individuals with the admin password can access the configuration menu.

When an admin password is enabled, if any user attempts to open the main menu, they are presented with a keypad. Unless the correct PIN code is entered, the main menu will not open. 

Enabling the admin password

In the main menu, press the Authentication icon.

Then, select Admin password from the list. 

Then, you will see a toggle bar labelled Use admin password. If the toggle bar is to the left and grey, it means the admin password is disabled. To enable it, touch the toggle bar, which will move to the right and turn blue. 

Setting the admin password 

Underneath the toggle bar, press the Password item. 

This will bring up a keypad. Input your chosen admin code and then press OK to save it. 

That's it! Now, once you exit the menu to return the reader to its standby mode, if anyone tries to open the menu, they must input the correct admin code first.
