For KeexyBox, a user is a person who can enter a login and password on the device he uses to connect it to the Internet. An Internet browser must be at least available on the device. A user can use the same credentials to connect multiples devices to the Internet. If you do not want to have entering a login and password to connect a device to the Internet go to this topic: Manage devices. Or since version 21.04.1, it is possible to disable the captive portal to prevent users from authenticating to access the Internet.
To manage users:
Connection settings → Users.

|The user name to display.

KeexyBox allows you to export or import users from CSV files.
Exporting or Importing users can be useful in the following cases:
You must first prepare a CSV file containing the list of users. We recommend that you export the list of KeexyBox's users in order to have a template for creating the import file.
The fields of the CSV file are described below.
|Login for the Internet connection. If a login has the same name in KeexyBox, all settings will be overwritten with the values from the CSV file.
|Username name to display.
|The password can be encrypted or in clear. If the length is less than 60, the password defined will be considered as clear and if it is equal to 60 as encrypted.
|The name of the profile. If the profile does not exist on KeexyBox, the user will be set to the default profile.
|The language displayed on KeexyBox Web interface for the user. If the language is unknown by KeexyBox the default KeexyBox langage will be set.
