Security is always top priority, to use the app, pair it with your device using a unique QR code.
The QR code is accessible only to logged-in users and changes regularly.
During the pairing process, the app can identify the user associated with the QR code and access your data securely.
The app uses OAuth2 technology, meaning that it’s only granted access to your data for a limited amount of time.
All communication between the app and Current RMS is via via SSL technology only (i.e. HTTPS).
