Password Management for Administrators and Other Users in Ingress

Friday, June 28, 2013 TimeTec 2 Comments

In FingerTec's integrated access control management application, Ingress, an administrator holds the authority to not only set or change his own password, but also for those of other users. This enables the administrator to manage other users' passwords in emergency cases such as forgetting your password. Read below for the step-by-step guide to change the passwords for both the administrator and other users. 

To Change the Administrator Password

1. Click on the Ingress icon and click on Change Password.

2. Insert the details of the old and new passwords in the relevant boxes before clicking Update

3. Click the OK button. Voila! You have now changed the password for the administrator. 

To Change Other Users' Passwords

1. Go to System Settings and click on User Account

2. Select the user account which you wish to change its password to. Click Edit Account to proceed. 

3. Insert the new password in Password and Confirm Password. Click the OK button to proceed. Voila! You have successfully changed the user's password. 


  1. Hi,

    If I forget DB installer password how to retrieve.

    1. Hi Sir,

      Good day to you.

      Regarding your issue on DBInstaller default password, please note that it is the same password that you insert for database setup during mysql installation.

      By right, we advice to insert database username as "root" and password as "root" as well. So you may try to insert "root" in password column in DBInstaller. But if the person who is doing an installation put in another password, we are not able to recover if in case that person forget what is the password he created before.

      In case you are unable to recall your password, you may refer the solution at the new link below from the vendor website on how to reset the MySQL password. You need to ask your programmer or IT personnel to configure the steps for you as you need an IT expertise to help regarding the configuration.
