Locking out a user

How to lock out a user from FotoWeb so they cannot log on. The topic also explains how to remove the lockout.

Locking out a user

Locking out an account means that the user will not be able to log on to the system. An administrator can lock a user out in two ways:

  • by setting an account expiry date in the user properties in the user management console. After that date, the user cannot log in again until the lockout is lifted.
  • by opening the user's properties and switching their access from Enabled to Disabled using the toggle switch. This immediately renders login impossible for the user.

Tip: Select multiple users in the user management console and use Set access to toggle the lockout state of all selected users in a single operation.
