We are happy to announce a new security feature as part of our ongoing commitment to protecting your data and helping you stay safe online. We already have the highest of security standards in place, and last year we introduced an optional 2-factor authentication feature to prevent access to your account if someone has your password. Now, our optional timeout feature allows you to choose how long the system can be left idle for before automatically logging you out of SimplePay.
With this new feature, if you forget to log out of SimplePay, the next person that uses that computer or electronic device will not have access to your account. This is especially beneficial to you if you share computers in the workplace, if you work on public computers or if you are concerned that someone will use your electronic device when you leave it unattended.
To access this feature:
- Go to the Profile icon and select User Profile
- Click on Lock screen after timeout
- Select a timeout option.
- If you select ‘Disabled’, you will not be logged out of the system, no matter how long a page has been left idle for.
- If you select a time from the menu (e.g. ‘1 hour’), it means that the system will log you out if there has been inactivity for the time specified.
- Click Save
Just another way that SimplePay is helping you take care of your sensitive employee data.
