How it works
When you use this option Calxa adds a record to your browsers storage that identifies your device on the current network. This record stores the following details.
- Public IP Address
- If you move locations with the same device like from between home and office for example then these 2 locations will require separate validation.
- If you visit a new location that you've not validated before like a clients office, this will require separate validation.
- If your internet service provider (ISP) changes your public IP address you will be required to validate the new IP address. This can happen if you restart your router for example.
- User Agent (browser)
- Signing in from a different browser on the same machine will require separate validation.
- Signing in from a different machine will require separate validation.
- Once the timestamp is greater then 30 days old, a new validation will be required.
Check that all of the above remains the same each time you sign in before progressing to the next troubleshooting steps.
