Logging into CBM Portal Client Axcess

1. Logging Into CBM Portal Client Axcess

To access CBM portal, you must be a new or existing client. For added security, CBM utilizes multi-factor authentication (“MFA”) to confirm your identity. MFA allows users to confirm their identity by entering a code that is sent to them via email, text message, or voice message. Once you enter the code, check the box at the bottom if you would like Portal to trust your computer or other device for up to 90 days. Using a trusted device means you will not have to repeat the Multi-Factor Authorization procedure. In 90 days, you will have to request another authentication code.

Use the email address you specified to CBM as your login. Click on “forgot password” to set up your password, if you don’t have it.
