After your initial sign in, Five's license agreement will not be delivered to you again unless an update has been made. In this event, you will need to accept Five's license agreement again.

Forgot Password

The Forgot Password button on Five's Sign in window allows a user to reset their password. An email will be sent to the user with a link and the user will be asked to enter their username and confirm a new password.

Only a user with the Administrator role can set the number of attempts a user can have to try to log in, if all attempts fail the account will be locked and the user will need to reset their password. The password is saved as a one-way hash meaning it cannot be restored, it must be reset.
