Using the Unlock Feature

Worry-Free Business Security Services administrators control security settings of all Security Agents in the network. Depending on administrator-configured settings, specific features may be locked.

The Security Agent unlock feature grants temporary administrative privileges, allowing access to all locked features. Administrators can use this to troubleshoot problems locally, without having to change global/server settings. An administrator's password is required to unlock administrative privileges.

On the main console, the lock button indicates the setting of the unlock feature.
