Password Utility

Setting a password lets you walk away from your device while providing additional protection for your files. When you set a password, you must enter the password before you can work on your device again.

TOSHIBA supports different types of passwords on your device:

❖ A supervisor password—Prohibits unauthorized users from accessing certain functions such as System

Settings. This is useful if more than one person uses the device.

❖ A user password—Prevents unauthorized users from starting the device.

When setting up passwords, keep the following in mind:

❖ The supervisor password must be set before the user password, or the user password must be deleted and then re-entered after the supervisor password is set.

❖ The user password can be set up under the supervisor password.

Using a supervisor password

A supervisor password prevents other users from changing hardware configuration options.

Setting a supervisor password

If you choose to set a supervisor or user password,

TOSHIBA strongly recommends that you save your password in a location where you can later access it should you not remember it.

TOSHIBA is not responsible for any losses that may occur to you, your organization or others as a result of the inability to access your device.
