IP Whitelisting filters out who can access your Concord account based on their Internet Protocol or IP address, a numerical label assigned to each device connected to a computer network. Concord can filter IPs at the time of login. Misconfiguring this setting can lead to users being inadvertently blocked from accessing their Concord account. For users with accounts linked to multiple companies, if one company has an IP whitelist activated and the user's IP doesn't appear on the whitelist, the connection will be refused.
- Contact your IT/network department for a list of valid IPs and IP ranges.
Note: Companies that log in using a single sign-on service (Google, Facebook, Linked In, or Twitter) cannot whitelist IPs.
Setting up the IP Whitelist
- Administrators can locate the IP whitelist in Company Preferences in Settings. If you do not add any IP address or ranges, then any IP address will be permitted.
- Enter a single IP address or an IP range per line.
Note: You must enter your current IP address. Otherwise, you will be blocked from accessing your Concord account at your next login.
Deactivating the IP Whitelist
- To deactivate IP whitelisting, remove all IP addresses and ranges from the input and Save.
