This is a short article intending to remind you of easy best practices to secure your Uizard account and your data.
While we go the extra mile in securing your information at Uizard, security works even better if it is implemented on both ends. This is why we encourage you to observe the following security best practices to protect yourself even when you are not using Uizard.
Whole disk encryption
We strongly recommend using a device that enables whole disk encryption. The most recent versions of iOS and Android encrypt all data by default. Desktop operating systems have also recently given users the option to encrypt data. We strongly recommend turning this on to secure your data.
Never share your accounts and your passwords. There are numerous security risks associated with sharing of credentials. Uizard will not be responsible for security breaches that could be pointed out to sharing of passwords and other account data.
Uizard encourages the best practices in password creation. We highly recommend that you use a strong password with complexity — this means making your password at least 8 characters long, using upper and lower cases alike, as well as alphanumerics and special characters. Nowadays, generating secure passwords has been made even simpler by password managers. If you suspect that your account may be compromised, change your password right away.
Using secure WiFi or an encrypted VPN
Never transmit authentication credentials when using public or non-secure wifi. Even though Uizard uses SSL and HTTPS, we strongly recommend the use of secure WiFi and a VPN when utilizing web-based services.
