Want to Login to LuxSci from your Mobile Phone with a Single Touch?

Quick Mobile Login

Mobile access to member web sites without an app is generally very tedious, as it requires entering a username and password to gain access … typing them in on the minuscule smartphone keyboards.  Annoyance with the time this takes often overrides the desire to use the web site.

Furthermore, if you are doing something else that requires your attention … typing in a username and password can be dangerous (you shouldn’t be multitasking when one task requires full attention … but people do it every day).

LuxSci has updated its WebMail interfaces so that you can login now with a single touch or click — the entering of usernames and passwords can be completely eliminated.  We call this method of access “Quick Login”.  People using Quick Login feel an immediate sense of relief with the speed and ease of access to their email, contacts, calendars, files, and other items.  LuxSci’s mobile web site now feels just like an app.

Protect your LuxSci Account with Two-Factor Authentication and Other Barriers

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

Two-Factor Authentication (supposedly patented by Kim DotCom)– using a password plus “something else” to gain access to your account and to prevent lost, stolen, or guessed passwords from impacting you — is finally becoming fashionable.

First, it was a cool idea, then some places such as LuxSci started supporting it, but it was rarely used due to people not wanting to bother with an extra step to login to their accounts.  Now, with Twitter adding 2-factor authentication to help stem the tide of account compromises, security is now fashionable.

This turn about is really fantastic as it brings security consciousness much more into the mainstream — so much so that popular Radio hosts are talking on the air about how to secure accounts.  This can only be good for the adoption of better security practices overall and a decrease in compromises due to laziness … and in cases like HIPAA, laziness can be a terrible thing.

In this post, we’ll go over how to secure your LuxSci account against intrusion using Two Factor authentication and other methods.

All new LuxSci “Mobile Site” for mobile web-based access .

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

LuxSci has had a “mobile site” for a long time — called the “Xpress Portal”.  The Xpress portal was designed for narrow interfaces and did not use any JavaScript or cookies — to make browsing fast, simple, and work on almost any device.  However, the Xpress portal was getting dated and not taking advantages of the features present in modern mobile devices (e.g. iPhones, iPads, Androids, etc.)

LuxSci has revised the Xpress portal from the ground up.  It is now simply called the Luxsci “Mobile Site”.  The Mobile Site:

Two Factor Authentication

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

LuxSci has added two-factor authentication as an option for its web interface.

With two-factor authentication enabled, a user will first enter his/her username and password.  If that is successful, then a special Token will be sent to the user’s configured mobile device (as a text message / SMS) or an alternate email address configured for the user.  The user then enters this Token into the LuxSci web interface login screen to complete the login process.

Two-factor authentication can be configured on a per-user basis for any LuxSci user in the “Account > My Profile > Two-Factor Authentication” page.
