Authomate StrongPass Team provides the capability to securely share account access with other users  with location, time, and calendar based control. Location based permissions allow you to create a circular Geofence with a specified radius from a specified map location. Once set, the user will be allowed to log into this account only when within that geofence. Time based permissions allow you to restrict access to an account to specified hours on specified days of the week. Once set, the user can log into the site only within that time range. Date based permissions allow you to to specify a valid date range when a user can access the account.
