Password Reset

What is Password Reset?

Password reset refers to the process enabling users to independently create a new password, typically needed when they forget their existing one or trigger a security lockout. This feature is a crucial aspect of identity management within a client portal.

How is it used in client portals?

Self-service password reset eliminates wait times for support when resetting credentials, reducing friction with handy features like:

  • Access Restoration. Offers a direct way for users to regain access through automated steps, bypassing the need for helpdesk support.
  • Verification. Password reset employs various security measures, such as sending codes to registered emails or phones to confirm user identity.
  • Temporary Access. The system generates temporary passwords for users upon initial entry. It prompts them to update their passwords immediately after.
  • Security Tracking. Client portals actively monitor all password reset activities to ensure that security measures are maintained and compliance standards are followed.
  • Advanced Policies. Integrates with systems like multi-factor authentication for robust security during password updates.
