Request Windows Login Credentials
You can request temporary use of the customer's log-in credentials for the current support session only, which will allow you to use their credentials without accessing or viewing their password (Windows customers only). If granted, this will allow you to reboot or unlock the customer's computer during the same support session, which can be helpful if the customer needs to leave their computer unattended while you are still working on it (e.g., to get lunch, attend a meeting, leave for the night).
Topics in this article:
- If not doing so already, view the customer's screen.
- Select System > Request Login Credentials from the Viewer menu.
- A Request window will open on the customer’s computer. The customer should enter their password (their user name and domain name will be automatically populated) and click OK.
- Once completed, customers will see a notification that the representative now has the ability to unlock or reboot their computer during the current session. They can also revoke the stored credentials at any time.
Representatives can use the customer's credentials to unlock or reboot the customer's computer by going to System > Apply Login Credentials.
