How do I temporarily allow device access?

With AccessPatrol you can temporarily provide users access to their devices with the Access Code Generator. The temporary access code does not require internet access to use, making it the ideal tool for giving mobile and remote workers temporary USB access when they do not have a direct connection to the network.

Access Code Generator

Generate an access code to allow your end-users temporarily access to their endpoint devices. The access code is unique to each computer that you generate for. Each access code can only be used once and has an expiry date.

  1. Click the AccessPatrol tab on the left-hand side of the console.
  2. Find the PC that your would like to temporarily allow access from your groups view.
  3. Select Generate Access Code from the Menu bar.

Access Code expires on: the code will expire on the expiry date and will no longer be valid. You can only generate an access code 30 days in advance.
Access Duration: this is how long the end user will gain full access.
Access Code: enter the access code on the end user’s computer.
