- Country: The county selector for the user login.
- Country Login Allow: This locks the user login to the country selected above. Meaning a user can only log in from the selected county.
- Allow VPN: This allows a user to log in to MyPMS while using a VPN.
Tip: A VPN is a virtual private network. Often used to hide the location of the IP address that the user is logging in from. Most properties do not allow this but for a very few this is how they access the internet. Our security team deemed the VPN as a possible security risk, but since some properties needed it, we made it a user option versus banning all VPN access. We recommend setting "Allow VPN" to no unless you have a specific IT reason for using a VPN.
