What are the System Requirements?
The alternative authentication method is username/password credentials. With username/password credentials, we do not look for the IP address at all.
Our subscriptions are licensed per location. It helps us to keep our information and products more secure by allowing for IP address authentication. If a dealership is set for IP authentication, we know that users cannot share their username/passwords with other users outside of the intended subscription.
An additional benefit of using IP address authentication is the ease of managing authentication. For example, a technician could easily lose credentials by clearing their cookies, and then they have to ask around the shop for the credentials. Or the password could be reset, and everyone would need to re-login, probably requiring time on the phone with tech support.
