You can define the maximum number of unsuccessful login attempts a user is allowed to make, after which the target account gets automatically locked. This is termed as Account Lockout Threshold in Sectona. It guards against unauthorized access. Once a user gets locked, only the global administrator or his equivalent can unlock them.


  1. Go to Configuration → Multifactor Authentication → Sectona Authentication.
  2. Under the 'Sectona Authentication & Lockout Policy' section, define the Account Lockout Threshold in terms of attempts.

  3. Click on Save.
