Security Policy Best Practice

At a minimum we recommend to all clients the Online backups and device sync & Backup all business profile items - but you should review all options with your client to find what is a best fit.

Step 6 – Deploy client apps

Each device a user will use to access their Password Boss account will need to have the client app installed. Multiple users can access their individual Password Boss account from the same device.

  • If a user logs into their account for the first time from a PC, any passwords stored in the browsers will automatically be imported into their account. Password imports only happen automatically once per account, and only on PC devices.
  • Each time a new device is added to a user’s account, the user will need to enter a verification into the app that is sent to their email address.
  • For a Windows PC installation – admin rights are required for the initial install, and .net 4.7.2 is required. For non-admin rights installation options, visit RMM Deployment
