How to Sign in Directly to FAWeb when Hosted

Users may request to remove the increased security Windows Authentication when logging into Faculty Access for the Web (FAWEB) and only sign in one time. The authentication feature requires Hosted FAWEB users have two logins, one for the Hosting network, and the other for FAWEB.  

For Online Campus Community Customers, you may be prompted for Windows Authentication when trying to use the Single Sign On feature to access FAWEB.
Blackbaud Hosting Services has implemented Windows Authentication as a security measure to protect your database.  FAWEB does not enforce password policies that meet traditional Internet security standards.  Windows Authentication allows Blackbaud Hosting Services to use the Hosting Password requirements, as well as, the automatic lock out and expiration policies to help protect your database from malicious attacks.  

If you use Online Campus Community, have users enter their Hosting Credentials when accessing FAWEB (they will not be prompted for FAWEB credentials)

It is possible to disable Windows Authentication, but please review the risks:
  • FAWEB doesn't have built in Password policies that meets security standards
  • We have implemented Windows Authentication in Hosting to protect access to your database with traditional security standards
  • Windows Authentication allows for Password Complexity, password expiration, and automatic lockout when an unauthorized user tries to log in more than 5 times.  These are now implemented in FAWEB
If you prefer to disable Windows Authentication, Click Chat with Support and provide the name of the Blackbaud application affected.
