How to modify accounts?

Generate options are automatically filled in when you choose a price plan during account generation.

However, if you like to modify some options (like increase download for the next 10 accounts you make) you can do it using the Accounts – Options page.


Options page has the following options:

• Quota – Total bandwidth traffic available to a user for downloading or uploading. It is usually displayed MB, GB or TB depending on value. The quota is not a sum of download and upload traffic. If you define 100 GB as quota, user can download and upload a maximum of 100 GB, whichever comes first.
• Unlimited Quota – Enable this option if you do not wish to limit users by bandwidth quota
Download – Download rate limitation. Download rate can be displayed in KBytes, Kbits, MBytes or Mbits. Like 1 Mbit/s
• Upload – Upload rate limitation.
• Time – Time available for Internet usage. It is measured in seconds
• Unlimited Time – Enable this option if you do not wish to limit users by time. It is useful if you charge users by bandwidth or users pay monthly fees
• Accounts expires on – Set the date when the account expires. After the expiration date account can not be used anymore for login and the user will see a message that the account has expired
• Accounts expire in _ days from first usage – Number of days in which will account expire from the first login. For example, if you set to 10 days, and the user will not be able to login on the 11th day from the first login
• Accounts expire in _ days from last usage – Number of days in which will account expire from the last login. For example, if you set it to 10 days, and the user does not login in the next 11 days, the account will expire
• Limit number of daily logins – Limit how many times a user can login on a daily basis
• Bandwidth quota daily limit – Total bandwidth traffic available to the user on a daily basis. When all daily quota is used, the user can login on the next day
• Bandwidth quota monthly limit – Total bandwidth traffic available to the user per month. When this option is turned on, it will apply to the rest of the current month, not to the next 30 days.
• Limit daily time usage – Total time available for Internet usage on a daily basis. When all daily time is used, the user can log in on the next day
• Limit monthly time usage – Total time available to the user per month. When this option is turned on, it will apply to the rest of the current month, not to the next 30 days.
• When the quota is exceeded, limit download speed to – When user reach quota limit set download speed to the desired value
• When the quota is exceeded, limit upload speed to – When user reach quota limit set upload speed to the desired value
• Multilogin with maximum _ simultaneous logins – Multilogin option allows more than one user (computer) to login with the same account. Users sharing one account also shares total download and upload rate. For example, 100 KB/s can be used by one user, or it can be used for 10 users to have approximately 10 KB/s each.
• Enable Usage schedule – days and time for account login – Specify time period when accounts can login. Day and time rules are defined in HotSpot – Setup – Usage Schedule page. This option can be used for example to allow a login for an account from 8 AM to 8 PM, or only on weekends, or to force the users to logout at midnight.
• Accounts are Active – Disabled option means that generated accounts can not be used for login until they are activated
• Inactivity timeout – Automatically disconnects the users from the Internet after a specified time of inactivity
• Autologin – Enable Autologin feature for accounts.
• Fixed MAC – Limit an account so it can login only from the devices you specify.
• Account Group – Define a group for the current batch of generated accounts. This option is useful for later bulk updating of the accounts, for example, if you need to increase speed.
