Did you know that the latest version of Zimbra Desktop, v 7.2.8, has two new security features?
– Password Lock
– Two-Factor Authentication
Now your Zimbra data is even safer!
To enable the Password Lock feature in Zimbra Desktop:
1. Click the Preferences tab.
2. Click General.
3. Scroll down to the Password Lock option, and click Enable Password Lock.
4. Click Save to save the change.
A lock icon is displayed in the header. Click the lock icon to password lock Zimbra Desktop, or you can close Zimbra Desktop, and you will be prompted for your Zimbra Desktop password to login again.
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
Before you can enable 2FA on Zimbra Desktop, it must be enabled in your Zimbra Web Client account.
When you try to add an account that is already protected with Zimbra 2FA, or if you enable 2FA in the Zimbra Web Client and later open that account in Zimbra Desktop, you will be prompted for a code.
Enter the code from your smartphone, and click Save.
