How to recover - user guide


Enable admin controlled user recovery

Admin controlled recovery is not enabled for your tenant by default. Navigate to Security settings to enable admin recovery for your organization.

While idemeum offers seamless and secure self-service user recovery, we realize that there might be situations when users loose or do not store recovery codes. For this purpose we offer a functionality where users can request new device recovery without secure QR-code and wait until admins of the organization approve it.

Here is the high level overview of the process.
