Receiving Security Alert Emails

A new security feature has been added to your Shift4Shop store on version 10.2.3

Upon logging into your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager, the system will now check your connection's IP address and record its location and city of origin.

If the system detects a login to your account from a different city, you will receive an email to notify you of this.

The email is merely a precaution to help you detect any unauthorized logins to your account. The email will be sent to the login's email address and contain the user ID that was logged into and the store it was detected on (in case you have multiple accounts), as well as the following:

  • When the login occurred

  • Where the recorded IP address location is.

  • The new IP address

  • Your Previous IP

Along with this information, you will also see instructions on handling the alert.

  • If the login is/was you, ignore the message. No action is taken or needed. Again, the email is a precaution.

  • If the login was NOT you, reply to the message or email to let us know.

We will note the information on your account to keep track of these instances, and we will lock your login to cancel and prevent any unauthorized logins to your Online Store Manager.

When the account is locked, a follow-up email will be instantly sent to your login's email address to allow you (and you alone) to unlock the account.

Afterward, you should also take steps to change your password and perhaps consider adding 2-factor authentication to your login to secure it even further.
