User Security Settings

This feature is applicable to GiveSmart customers who ONLY own the Fundraise module.  If you own 2 or more GiveSmart modules, our Single Sign-On feature would override this functionality.  

If you would like these controls for security settings, contact your Customer Success Manager or GiveSmart Fundraise Support to enable this feature for you.

Security Settings are an optional, granular approach to user account security. By clicking the Security Settings button you can change the complexity required for a user's password, have the passwords expire and more.
