A firewall is a security feature for limiting and controlling access to the dashboard to only trusted IP addresses/ranges. An additional authentication measure ensures increased security and a lower risk of accounts being compromised.
Follow these steps to enable the firewall for your account-
- Navigate to Settings >> Login >> Firewall
- Click Add Firewall.
- Select the type - Allow/Block. Select Allow if you want to whitelist any IP, and select Block if you want to blacklist any IP.
- Enter the IP addresses and subnets as CIDR ranges that you want to allow or block.
Note- If your current IP does not fulfil the firewall criteria, you will not be able to add it. You may see the following error message:
- Click Save.
Once the firewall is enabled, all the logged-in users who are not on the registered networks will automatically be logged out.
Once the firewall is set up, the users need to be on the registered networks to access the dashboard. Any user who is not on the registered networks will be denied access.
