You can freeze access to your account for as long as you wish. If you ever get the sense that there’s suspicious activity in your digital life—while traveling, using public WiFi, or out and about—and wish to prevent anyone (hackers too) from gaining access to your account, you can freeze access to your LogMeOnce account from any device. Simply select for how long!
Once you initiate an account freeze, no transactions or activity can occur. You can specify that only access from computers (or certain computers) is prohibited while allowing access from a specific “trusted” mobile device (or vice versa) to unfreeze your account.
How to Setup Account Freeze?
Go to the smart menu and tap on the Anti-hacker Protector icon that you will find under the Identity Protection section.
You will be prompted to the Anti-Hacker Protector Dashboard. Tap on the Account Freeze Icon.
Select your desired account freeze option and proceed by clicking Save Changes and Logout button. (for the detailed overview of these options, read the whole article).
After clicking the Save Changes and Logout button, you will be logged out from your account and your account will be frozen.
What are Account Freeze Options?
LogMeOnce Account Freeze provides multiple freeze options. They are:
- Freeze my account until I unfreeze it
- Freeze my account until Date & Time
- Freeze all other IP addresses excluding mine
- Freeze all other devices excluding mine
You can mouse over the information icon "i" to see additional information.Freeze my account until I unfreeze it:
With this option, your account goes into freeze status and stays frozen until you unfreeze it by visiting the LogMeOnce login page to initiate your login.
Freeze my account until Date & Time:
This option will freeze everything in your account until your specific date and time. By default, it shows the current date and then displays the closest hour. You can change it to the desired date and time. Once completed, click on Save Changes and Logout.
Freeze all other IP addresses excluding mine:
This option will freeze access to your account from any IP Addresses except your desired IP Address. As default, it shows the current IP Address where you are logged in from. This means any connection from another IP Address is frozen until it gets unfrozen which requires additional step up and authentication. When you login from your desired IP Address, your account is not frozen and it works as normal.
For example, you are working with multiple customers or users and when you visit a customer site, you could only enable access from that network alone, and all other networks and IP addresses are frozen. Another example is when you leave your office and go home, you can add greater security to your office network and account by simply adding account freeze and hence preventing anyone from accessing your account from your office location, network, or computer (or vice versa)!
Freeze all other devices excluding mine:
This option will freeze everything in your account from selected devices. By default, it shows the list of current devices in your account. You could select one or multiple devices to add to your exception list. You could use the Control or Shift keys to select one or more devices.
When your account is frozen, you can only log in from the selected devices. For example, if you can not find/locate your device or your device is being used by a family member, you could freeze access to your LogMeOnce account, but your devices will function as normal.
How to Unfreeze my Account?
When you try to log in to your account by visiting the LogmeOnce login page, when:
- Your account is frozen
- Attempt to log in during the freeze Date and Time
- Attempt to log in from a frozen IP Address
