Password Protection

Implementing password protection for the C3™ CMS program is optional, but is recommended when multiple users will be utilizing the same workstation computer to monitor camera streams through the C3CMS program.

This article will outline how to change the Administrator password for the C3™ CMS program. 

Note:  This will not affect the login credentials of any recording units that are connected to the workstation computer through the network.

Note:  If you have already applied an Administrator password for C3CMS and have forgotten the password, the C3CMS program must be completely clean reinstalled to reset the login credentials.

If you must perform a clean reinstallation, please read Clean Reinstalling C3CMS (Windows).
