Enhance security with Self password policy of SSO1

With SSO1, the admin can easily use the self password policy to enable the employees to reset their password by themselves. In case, the password is forgotten or has to be changed for security reasons, then there is no need to take anyone’s help.


Reduces flaws to increase productivity

It is very common to forget your password and contacting the IT team every time to wish to reset it, which is a big waste of time for both. The self password feature of SSO1 covers it very effectively, keeping things very simple and highly secure at the same time. This is done considering the fact that hackers try to gain access using loopholes of password resetting. For this, the admin has to set the security questions and not the user, who often chooses easy-to-guess questions.


How SSO1 adds security in a interesting way by leveraging users

  • On the dashboard, select the “Self Password option” from drop-down of the heading “Identity”.
  • Once you have selected the self password option, various settings come as follows.
    1. First is the “Title” where you have to enter the policy title.
    2. Next to it is the description where you can add some words describing the policy.
    3. Then there is this checkbox saying “Enable” to enable your set policy.
    4. Then, you have to input time, for which the policy has to be implemented. Here, there are two options:
      • A. Valid Always
      • B. Valid From (Date to be entered) - Valid To (Date to be entered)
    5. Next, you have to select from the two options to Retrieve Password.
      • A. OTP
      • B. Questionnaire
    6. On selecting OTP, it simply uses registered phone number for resetting. Then from the list box, select the “Number of Attempts Allowed” and “Skip Attempts”.
    7. On selecting the “Questionnaire” option, the admin has to set various options.
      • Select Number of Questions
