To use the SCP App, you must authenticate with your SCP access data. Enter your username and password, then select "Login".

Security Mode

Scp app19.jpg

If you have activated the so-called security mode in the web version of the SCP, access to the SCP App is not possible by default, as the security mode deactivates password login. In this case, you will receive the error "Login failed. Security mode is active.". You can bypass this by allowing login to the app even with the security mode activated in the web version of the SCP under Options -> Settings -> App access despite security mode.

Forgot Password

By clicking on "Back to Login", you can return to the login form.


After successful login, you will reach the homepage. Here you get an overview of all existing servers in your customer account:
