With the Appearance tab, you will be able to customize all the graphic settings, as well as add your own logo.

You have the choice between a collection of photos, or you can add your own. You can also set any color theme with the background color of your choice or you can use one of the classic themes.

You can also type a keyword to search a background image from the Unsplash library:

  • "Show the Domain Field": When checked, the Domain field is included in the login information request.
  • "Password": You can add an alert message showing during the connection through the web portal, to inform the user about his password expiring date. For example, the following pop-up will show if the user’s windows password expires in less than 3 days:

Web Credentials

The "Web Credentials" section allows you to enable (or disable) the Web Credentials feature.

When using Web Credentials, you might want to allow empty passwords. If you only have Web Credentials with empty passwords, we recommend that you uncheck the "Show Password Field" option, in order to simplify even more the web login page.
