How to Whitelist Devices

Device whitelisting is a security measure to control and limit the number of devices that can access the Vymo app. This ensures that users can't use the application on numerous devices at once, enhancing the app's security.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Log into the Vymo Web App:
  2. Start by logging into the Vymo web app using your credentials.

  3. Access User Management:

  4. Once logged in to self-serve, head to the "User Management" section.

  5. Navigate to Login & Sessions Configuration:

  6. Within "User Management," find and click on "Login & Sessions Configuration."

  7. Enable Device Whitelisting:

  8. Look for the "Device Whitelisting" subsection.
  9. Choose the "Enable" option.

  10. Specify Maximum Devices:

  11. Here, you can specify the maximum number of devices a user is permitted to log in from. For instance, if you set it to '2', a user can only access the Vymo app from two different devices.

  12. Configure First-Time User Authentication:

  13. Find the option "Register for 1st Time User."
  14. Selecting this option means you want new users to undergo an authentication process during their initial login. This enhances security for first-time access.
  15. If you wish to provide direct access to the app for users logging in for the first time, without any authentication, uncheck this box.

  16. Set Time Frame for Device Changes:

  17. Define a specific time frame within which users are prevented from logging into the Vymo app on multiple devices. This is especially useful to deter rapid, repeated attempts to access the app from various devices.

  18. Add Device Whitelist Label:

  19. Optionally, you can add a label for device whitelisting.

By following these steps, you can implement device whitelisting in Vymo to enhance the security of your application and control device access effectively.
