Sign-in and Session Options

NOTE: To configure sign-in and session options, you need to be an organization security admin.

You can configure sign-in and session options for all users and workspaces across your organization. This lets you set parameters for such things as session location, session length, and the number of sign-in attempts.

To view or update options, go to Organization Admin > Security > Authentication.
