Restrict User Access to LeadSquared Using IP Whitelisting

1. Feature Overview

IP whitelisting is a security enhancement feature that enables you to regulate and limit LeadSquared product and LeadSquared APIs access only to trusted users. By whitelisting user IP addresses, you’ll be creating a list of trusted and secure IP addresses from which your users will be able to access their LeadSquared accounts.

Additionally, you can also create and add a list of IP addresses of your users who are authorized to pass LeadSquared APIs.

Note:

  • Logins through suspect IPs (tors/anonymous proxies) are automatically disabled.
  • You cannot also whitelist IP addresses only for specific users in your organization. IP whitelisting can only be carried out at the account level.

 

2. Prerequisite

To set up IP Whitelisting, you must be an Administrator user of your LeadSquared account.

 

3. IP Whitelist for LeadSquared Login

To add a list of users who are authorized to log in to their accounts through the LeadSquared web app –

    • IP – Enter the list of user IPs you want to whitelist. If you’ve chosen the method as IP Address, then you can add multiple IP addresses at one go. Ensure each IP address is separated by a comma. For example, if the IP addresses 69.89.31.226  and 98.139.180.149 is added to the IP whitelist, only users using these IP addresses will be able to access your LeadSquared account through the web app. All other IP addresses are blocked from accessing LeadSquared.

  4. Alongside Enable IP Restriction, click Yes*.
  5. Once you’re done, click Save. Only the user’s who’s IP is listed here will now be able to log in to their LeadSquared accounts from the web.

  • Please ensure you add your own IP address to the Whitelist before enabling IP Restrictions. Enabling IP restrictions without adding your own IP address to the whitelist will block your own access to LeadSquared.
