How to password protect the Serial Device Manager

Cloud-In-Hand Mobile Attendance customers can enable password protection for the Serial Device Manager (SDM) settings. After enabling SDM password protection, user accounts using the Mobile Attendance application for Android will be able to access the Serial Device Manager and add/remove devices but will be unable to view or change global or individual device settings without the SDM password. The screenshots below demonstrate what happens when a user account tries to access the SDM settings.

Global Settings

1. The user attempts to access the global settings for the Serial Device Manager.

2. The user is prompted for the SDM password.

3. If the user or the admin provides the SDM password, the user will be able to access the SDM settings. The SDM password must be provided each time the user accesses the SDM settings (global or device-specific).

Individual Device Settings

1. The user attempts to access individual device settings (by tapping on the settings icon).

2. The user is prompted for the SDM password.
