A Guide to ‘Security Settings’ on SpringVerify

What are the ‘Security Settings’ features on SpringVerify?

Security Settings’ features are the second layer authentication mechanism available to SpringVerify customers to improve protection against threats to the access and usage of candidate/company data.

NOTE: These settings are applicable to users and not to candidates.

Login Methods

  • Authenticate a user to log into the SpringVerify portal using a specific login method (User ID -Password, Google SOS, Microsoft account, etc…)Enabling or disabling certain login methods for your user will allow or restrict logging into the SpringVerify portal, respectively.
  • Example:  
    • If you enable only google login for your company, users can log in to SpringVerify using their Gmail account only. No user will be able to login using ID-password or Microsoft account.
    • This scenario is helpful when a user leaves your organization and no more has access to their official Gmail account. They won't be able to login to SpringVerify using their ID-password as the password login is disabled for your organization.

Password Expiry

  • Password expiry helps to foil an attacker who intercepts or guesses the older password for any users in your workspace. Enabling this setting will mandate all your users to change their SpringVerify login password after certain days. 
  • Example: If you enable, Password Expiry settings for 15 days, it will mandate all users to change their password, every 15 days to access their SpringVerify account.

Domain Whitelist

  • Domain Whitelist security settings prevent unauthorized access to your data by people outside our organization or with email IDs from a different domain.
  • Example: If you enable a domain Whitelist for @springverify.com, any user with different domains (such as abc@springverify.in) will not be allowed to log in to your SpringVerify workspace. 

Auto-Log out

  • Protect your workspace from unauthorized access by automatically logging out users from the SpringVerify portal after a certain period of inactivity.
  • Example: If you enable Auto-log out period for 3 hours, any user who is inactive on this portal will be logged out and will be asked to log in again to access SpringVerify.
