What’s Dynamic Password? Dynamic Password is used to login to Web Desktop.

You’ll need this password to login to the web desktop if you don’t set a Predefined Password. For security purposes, each Dynamic Password is valid for only one time and a new Dynamic Password is generated the next time you try to login. If you don’t like dynamic passwords, please try to set a Predefined Password.

To enable it, please go to Settings(at the bottom column, you may need to slide the icons left to find it) on the Android app, find Predefined Password, press the On/Off button and set it to ON, input a password and press OK. Please note that when Predefined Password is enabled, the Dynamic Password will be disabled automatically and replaced by Predefined Password (shown as Predefined) on the home screen.
