It’s Safer Internet Day, which is an annual worldwide initiative that aims to create a better internet for everyone.

At Youmanage, we’re passionate about safety and security, which is why our product contains industry-leading security features to ensure our customer data is locked down at every level.

Two Factor Authentication

Two Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA, two-step verification, or TFA, is an extra layer of security known as multi factor authentication that requires not only a password and username, but also something else that only that user has. We have built this into Youmanage as an option to be set up – when 2FA is switched on, an email with a verification code will be sent to the user to further secure the account. This doesn’t have to be switched on for everyone – you can choose to have 2FA switched on for only Admin users, or only HR users, and so on.

Password Expiry

In order to help you mitigate potential data security risks, you can set up your own password expiry periods in line with your own data security policies. You will be able to set up a password expiry period to ensure users are updating their passwords as regularly as you deem necessary.

Password Complexity (and length)

You can dictate the length and complexity requirement for all users of your Youmanage system. For example, you can choose that your users’ passwords must include upper case letters, numbers, special characters, etc., or a combination of the above. You can then choose whether the password needs to be six characters or eight characters in length, for example.

Password Lock-Out

The Lock-Out Policy allows clients to dictate the number of times a user can attempt to log-in before they get locked out of the system for – and then how long a period of time they should be locked out for before they can try to log in again.

If you have any questions regarding the data security measures we have implemented, or would like to find out how Youmanage can support your compliance efforts, please contact us.
