Two-factor authentication with PIN code
With a PIN code, you protect the USB key and prevent the third party from logging in to your Mac without your permission. After you plug in the USB key, Rohos Logon will ask the user to enter the PIN in order to log in or unlock your Mac.
PIN code is secure and convenient because:
- The user gets only 3 attempts to enter a valid PIN.
- Thus, the PIN can be a short password like “135”
- The user will need to enter it each time to log in to a Mac or unlock the screen with a USB key.
After the third wrong PIN attempt, the USB key is blocked and cannot be used for Mac authentication. To enable this key again, the user must change the PIN.
