How to secure your account ?

Use secure passwords

Insecure passwords are the most common security vulnerability. If an account password is insecure and becomes compromised, client sites can be defaced, infected, or used to spread viruses. Secure passwords are of paramount importance if you wish to have a secure server.

  • Generally, a password that utilizes at least eight characters, which includes alphanumeric and grammatical symbols, is sufficient.
  • Never use passwords that are based on dictionary words or significant dates.
  • If a password can be broken in a few hours, then it is probably too insecure and should not be used.
  • Never use a password that you are using for other account(s) also.
