Changelog

20.5.0 (2020-05-25)
Changes compared to 20.2.3

Feature:

  • Support TOTP 2FA for customer accounts
    PLEASE NOTE: this is a limited-security feature only, protecting only (A) registering new devices; (B) opening the desktop app; and (C) logging in to the Magnus Box web interface as an end-user. Because backup jobs need to run unattended without 2FA prompting, this feature does not provide full 2FA protection in all cases.
  • Support remote browsing a customer’s PC when selecting files for backup
  • Support remote browsing a customer’s PC when selecting a restore path in the Magnus Box web interface
    PLEASE NOTE: For privacy reasons, these features may be disabled by the customer using the “Allow administrator to view file names” option.
  • Support an end-user changing their own password, language, account-name, TOTP when logged in to the Magnus Box web interface
  • Support an admin changing customer’s password without recovery code, if they otherwise know the customer’s password
