Editing an Existing Account

Hideez Client App – Editing an existing account

You can edit only those accounts that you created on your key by yourself. Accounts created by the HES administrator cannot be changed.

Double-click on the line with the account to open detailed information. Click Edit and go to the account data editing window.

Please note that the Save button will be displayed only if you have made any changes.

You can

  • Change login

  • Enter a new password manually or generate a complex password in the client interface (by clicking on the corresponding icon in the password line)

  • Add or change websites and applications where this account is valid. If no site or application is specified, the account will be used to log on to the computer. There are no restrictions as to the number of sites and applications for the account. You can choose applications from those that are automatically set by Windows on your computer.

  • Specify or modify OTP Secret.

Once saved, the changes will take effect.

Also you can change domain account password directly from the Hideez Client. It means that you can change the account password in the AD as well, not just on the hardware vault.

It is possible if it meets the following requirements:

  • You have to be signed in the domain user.

  • There is domain unlock account on the vault.

To change domain account password, do the following steps:

  1. Login to your domain user.

  2. Open Hideez Client.

After that you don't have to change the password on the AD server, you can login with this new password even without the Key. So please save this password anywhere to remember it, if needed.

Please, note that default domain password change policies allow changing password only once for a 24 hour period.
