Mini Texans Payroll system requires a two-step log in process as part of their higher security standards.
1. Enhanced Passwords
Your password must contain a minimum of 8 characters and include at least one of each of the following: uppercase letter, lowercase letter, number, and symbol (ex: Password1$).
2. Virtual code Authorization (VCA) or Virtual Code Authentication
After you enter your username/password and click login, if the system does not recognize this computer as one you have used in the past 30 days, the system will require a second form of authentication before you can continue. A code will be emailed, texted, or sent to you via an automated voice call, which you will then enter, in order to access the system. The security combination factors are as follows:
- Password = something you know
- Code = something you have
First Time Login:
A first time login will require a password change and configuration of VCA settings for future logins.
Enter username and password that was provided in an e-mail.
You will be required to change your password. The new password must be at least 8 characters long and contain at least one of each of the following character types:
- Uppercase Letter
- Lowercase Letter
Once the password has been changed, the next time you login to the system you will be taken to a form to configure your VCA Settings. Up to three methods can be configured for receiving the code, as follows:
- Text Message #: Will be used to send codes via text message (preferred method)
- Voice Phone #: Will be used to send codes via phone call
- Email: Will be used to send codes via email address
One or more methods may be selected. Any information that is already listed in your account will be pre-populated. If multiple phone or email numbers are stored in the system, those will be made available to you via the drop-down lists shown in each field. You may also enter new information not stored in the system. When this happens, an administrator must approve the new credentials.
Once this step is completed, you will be logged directly into the system.
Anytime thereafter, when logging in from a device that has not been remembered, you will be asked which method you would like to use to receive your code for that specific login.
Select a method and click the button to send either a Text Message, Voice, or Email.
After the code is received, enter the code, you may check the boxand click “Continue.” You will now be logged in to the system.
Note: If the box is checked, the next time you log in from this device, a second factor of authentication (code) will not be required for login. As a best practice, this option should only be checked on individual personal computers and should never be checked on a public or shared computer.
