This interface allows you to create additional Manage2 user accounts, each with their own Manage2 login information and permissions.

Why create additional users?

You may find it useful to offer individual user accounts to your users, as opposed to a single account with multiple users.

If you create additional users, you can increase the security of your primary Manage2 account and use the following features:

  • Restrict access based on the needs of specific users.
  • Limit each user's notifications to those that are relevant to the user's access level and account status.
  • Remove access for terminated employees without any changes to the main account or other user accounts.

Add a user

To create a user account, enter the new account information in the Options form.


  • We strongly recommend that you set the User Name to an email address.
  • Make certain to assign privileges to the user.

Add or remove user privileges


 If you do not add any privileges, the user can access the following features by default:

  • Change Password
  • Manage Ip Access
  • Security Setup
  • Wire Transfer & Check Payment Information
  • Change Preferences
  • Update My Information Submit a New Priority Support Request

To assign privileges to your new user account, perform the following steps:

  1. Select the privileges that you want to assign to the user from the left-side menu. 
  2. Click the right-direction arrow () to add the privileges.
    • To remove a privilege, select it from the right menu and click the left-direction arrow ().
  3. Click Add.
