Adjusting Login Security

In addition to adjusting individual user permissions, there are a few security settings that you can change to help prevent users for using LDMS under another person's user account:

  • Require login when trying to use a specific feature. Even if users are logged into LDMS, they will still be required to provide their password to move between tasks.

  • Adjust the time frame when LDMS will automatically lock. A username and password will be required to access LDMS again.

  • Train laboratory staff to lock LDMS manually when leaving a workstation. This is done by clicking Administration > Session Lock from the LDMS menu bar, or by pressing Ctrl + Shift + L.
