The four-eyes principle means that a certain activity, i.e. a decision, transaction, etc., must be approved by at least two people. This controlling mechanism is used to facilitate delegation of authority and increase transparency.

Since version 2.4.20, VDG Sense provides to ability to turn on ‘Dual Login’. This feature requires two users to authentication in order to login to the native client. This function can be enabled in the ‘System’ tab. The functionality of ‘Auto Login’ and ‘Default Credentials’ is not available when ‘Dual Login’ is enabled.
