Netchex Online Tagline
Netchex will be introducing a new security upgrade that will provide additional benefits for Netchex users.
During this process, usernames and passwords stored in your web browser will be lost. All employees will need to know their username and password the next time they log in to Netchex. Employees should know their login credentials prior to leaving the office on the day of the release to avoid a missing or late punch the next day.

What to Expect
Netchex usernames and passwords stored in your web browser will be lost. All employees will need to know their username and password the next time they log in to Netchex. Employees should know their login credentials prior to leaving the office before the release to avoid a missing or late punch the next day.
This release follows the Limited Employee Access Release last March in which employees who do not have a unique, personal email address could be switched to a Limited Employee Access account. Following the release, employees who do not have a unique, personal email address will be required to switch to a Limited Access Account. Review the instructions for more information.

Updated Navigation Menu
Along with the security upgrade, Netchex will also be releasing a new navigation menu. The menu will make it easier for employees and administrators to navigate the system. While you will see a new navigation, no employee permissions will be changed.
Why Switch to Microsoft
Microsoft Azure AD is industry-leading on security measures and has been recognized as the most trusted cloud service for U.S. government institutions. This means that it offers unparalleled security benefits for Netchex clients.
Benefits of working with Microsoft Azure AD include:

  • Multi-factor authentication, device registration, and self-service password management to provide an additional level of authentication preventing any unauthorized access to Netchex applications.
  • Users can link multiple accounts eliminating the need to remember multiple usernames and passwords and making it easier to switch between accounts.
  • Users can utilize single sign on (SSO) for Netchex and other cloud services that are included in the Netchex system.
  • Users can use their personal email address as their username, making their username easier to remember.
