Guide to security preferences

Who can do this?

  • Practitioners: Full Access

  • Administrators: Full Access

In addition to our world-class security features, Halaxy also provides you with automated security preferences for your group:

  • Password Refresh requires all users in your practice group to change their password after a regular interval of time. You can specify the schedule of these intervals.

  • Idle Activity automatically logs out users after a period of inactivity. You can set the length of this inactive period that logs users out.

  • New Login Alerts automatically sends an email notification to users when their account is signed in from a new location or device.

These features are optional, but we recommend using them to strengthen your account security.

Tip

It’s always better to maximise your security. Don’t forget to enable two-factor authentication for your group!
