How to Add Extra Security using a Personal Password

Use a personal password to create an extra layer of security for a host computer.

  1. Access the host preferences:
    • From the host computer, open the LogMeIn Control Panel and follow this path: Options > Preferences > Security
    • From a client device, connect to the host Main Menu and follow this path: Preferences > Security
  2. Under Personal Password, enter your personal password and then enter it again to confirm.
    Tip: The personal password must be at least 6 but no longer than 15 characters and can only contain the Latin characters A-Z, a-z; and numbers 0-9.
  3. Click OK or Apply.

    Result: Your settings are applied immediately to the host.

Results: When you next connect to this computer from this account you will be prompted to enter a subset of characters from the Personal Password before being granted access. Upon entering the correct characters (for example, the first, the fourth and the seventh) you are granted access.
