Security in the GOT series is very basic, only a password, no user name. If you want security with a user name, you will have to program it with the PLC.

GT15 and GT16 support a feature called Operator Authentication, where the usernames and passwords are set on the GOT, with each user being assigned a security level. The objects on the screen can be assigned view and operate security levels. GOT900 series did not have these features. It's an OS component you will configure in system settings and then install during the download.

Can't set users on PC, must be done on terminal when using operator authentication. These security methods are explained in the GOT1000 Screen Design Manual (Fundamentals).
