|When you enable 2FA, logging in to your account requires a secondary code from an app or mobile device.
|What happens if someone else tries unsuccessfully to access my account?
|If someone tries to log into your account too many times in a row, failing each time, then their IP is automatically blocked for several hours.
|How to keep track of our account passwords, especially with more than one user in our company?
|Keep in mind that easy-to-remember passwords are not recommended, since they’re also easier for hackers to figure out. A password manager like 1Password that can generate strong random passwords provides good controls.
| Could I ask ProxyMesh to fill out a security questionnaire and return it to me?
|We are a small company, and by policy we do not fill out security questionnaires. We are open, of course, to answer any specific questions that are not covered in ProxyMesh Security and Security FAQ.
