StrongPass PC Logon for Windows extends StrongPass technology into the realm of Microsoft Windows account access. With StrongPass PC Logon for Windows installed, a user can log into or change their account password on a Windows computer by scanning a QR code at the logon desktop or by using the Proximity  feature. The logon desktop is presented to the user either upon:

  • Signing in a user after booting the Windows OS, after signing out, or after locking the PC.   
  • Switching users     
  • Unlocking a locked user 
  • Change password option after ctl-alt-del.

StrongPass PC Logon can be used with or without internet access as long as both your computer and phone support the Proximity feature using Bluetooth LE. If your computer or phone do not support Proximity, then internet access is required. 

PC Logon is a   TeamPlus feature. For additional information on how to get started with StrongPass PC Logon for Windows click here.

During installation of StrongPass Component you can tick the checkbox for: "Show the StrongPass tile by default upon initial display of the logon screen" or leave it unchecked. If left unchecked, a user at the logon screen will be presented with a series of logon tiles (one of which will be the Authomate tile, "StrongPass PC logon"). The user must then select the one they wish to log in with, with a mouse click.

If the checkbox is checked, the user is saying that they want the "StrongPass PC logon" tile to be pre-selected, so that when a user is at the logon screen, the "StrongPass PC logon" tile will be selected without them having to click on it first.

Log into your machine by scanning a QR code or using the Proximity feature on any Windows machines that support Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE).

You can move users between the two lists by clicking to select a user  then clicking the right or left arrow to move them.

The Manage Proximity window can be launched by clicking the icon placed on the desktop during  PC Logon installation.
