PLEASE NOTE! If you plan to activate the registration of Tokens through the Users’ Self-Service Portal, your Users in Protectimus system must additionally have a password or an email address on record. A verification code will be sent to the registered email address to allow your users to log into the Self-Service Portal. If a User has both a password and a registered email address, that User will use the password to log in. After a Token is issued for a User and assigned to a Resource, the User will also be asked for an OTP password from the Token when logging in to the Users’ Self-Service Portal.
