Changing login methods

If you want to change login methods after the installation, you need to edit the configuration profile and reactivate your printer(s).

You can choose between two types of login: simple login and two-step authentication. With the simple login option, you can select up to three methods of login, and with the two-step authentication, you can select a combination of the login methods. On Xerox embedded terminals, it is not possible to use login by PIN and login by Username + Password at the same time. If both login methods are set, PIN login method can be used.

When using the PIN login method, leave the User name empty, and tap OK:

When using the Username + Password login method, enter the User name and tap OK:

To change the login type:

  1. In the MyQ Web administrator interface, go to MyQ, Settings, Configuration Profiles.

  2. Select the profile you want to change and click Edit on the main ribbon (or right-click and Edit or double-click). Choose the login method on the Terminal tab in the pane to the right.

  3. Click Save. A pop-up window tells you that you need to activate the printers again.

  4. Click OK if you want to re-activate all the printers connected to this profile or click Skip if you only want to change the settings for specific printers.

  5. If you chose to skip, go to MyQ, Printers to open the Printers overview. Select the printer(s) to change, right-click and select Activate.

  6. Restart the printing device(s).
