Personal Passwords in the Activity Log
IT Glue Administrators can see activity logs related to Personal Passwords without being able to navigate to the password record or view the password value.
If a password which was previously public was converted to personal, users who are not the password's current owner cannot navigate to its previous, public revisions.
If a password which was previously public or shared is converted to Personal, the activity log entry will read: Security Settings Updated.
Restoring Personal Passwords
Administrators can restore their own deleted personal passwords and the deleted personal passwords of other users via the Activity Log.
Terminating a User with Personal Passwords
Decommissioning a user’s IT Glue account (in the case of a departure, for example) will permanently delete all personal passwords created by that user. A warning that the user has personal passwords which will be deleted will appear with options to proceed or cancel the termination.
Personal passwords can be created from the Chrome Extension by selecting Yes under Personal Password*.
Once you hit Save you can always change the security settings in the web application.
Disabling Personal Passwords
If you wish to disable Personal Passwords in your IT Glue account, navigate to Account > Settings to the General tab. In the Account Defaults section, check off the Disable personal passwords checkbox.
This setting will be unchecked by default and can be changed at any time. When personal passwords are disabled, users will not be able to create new personal passwords or make any existing passwords personal. Users will be able to view any existing personal passwords they have saved, and make these public or shared.
