Find your security settings at Settings > Other > Security .

More secure passwords

By opting in to more secure passwords every user will be required to set themselves a password which has:

  • Between 8 and 32 characters
  • At least one lowercase character
  • At least one uppercase character
  • At least one number

Password expiry interval (days)

You can decide how frequently your users must change their password, from as often as every day (1), to once a year (365).

IP restriction

Use this option if you are certain that your internet provider gives you a static IP. The majority of providers do not.

This allows you restrict anyone from logging into your Brightpearl account using any staff login unless they are logging in from an accepted IP address.

Warning

 

IP address lock out

Use this option if you are certain that your internet provider gives you a static IP. The majority of providers do not.

This has the potential to completely lock you out of your own account. Ensure you correctly enter all IP addresses. If an IP address changes you will not longer be able to log in so it is a good idea to use a few.
