Two Factor Authentication
When using Abtrac two factor authentication, a code will be sent to the user’s email address which is required to be entered before gaining access to Abtrac. This will confirm the device they are working on is a trusted device.
Each user can opt to remember this device for 30 days or they can get a new code every time they login in.
AbtracOnLine includes a timeout setting after a certain period of inactivity.
If no data has been entered, or if the browser pages have not been manually refreshed then the software is designed to log out inactive users.

Forgot your password
AbtracOnLine is only accessible with a current username and password. Your username must be a valid email address and we recommend choosing a secure password (there are tips for secure passwords in this article). Abtrac passwords must be at least 7 characters long, and contain a combination of upper/lower case letters and at least one number.
We understand that there is a trade off between choosing a complex secure password – and choosing a password that you can remember.
Regardless of the platform, a secure and sensible password is a must. A professional hacker doesn’t really mind whether you are accessing cloud, server, or desktop data. The software professional hackers use to crack your password is capable of making one hundred billion password guesses per second.
If your password contains 6 or less letters they could have access in 0.02 seconds.
However, if your password consists of 10 letters and numbers it would take 10.45 hours for a professional to crack – now that’s much better.
There are some simple things you can do to create and easily remember a complex, secure password.
