Security is a mindset that has many components and is the responsibility of each company. There are a number of security best practices that your company can employ, such as using a secure service, having formalized security protocols, and educating your teams on security measures. While Passbase can provide our users with some general tips around improving security, we would advise you to seek out professional advice on security-related matters.
Below are a few tips to keep your account and your users' data secure. Note that this list is not exhaustive and we advise teams to consult professionals on best practices.
Security measures for a user to secure their own account:
- Use a secure password. Your password is required to be at least eight characters long and have capital and lower case letters, at least one digit, and at least one special character. We suggest using a password generated by a Password Manager.
- Enable Two-factor authentication (2FA) as an additional security measure.
- Do not share your password with others.
- Do not share user accounts between employees.
Security measures to prevent data leaks:
- Ensure nobody can access sensitive data like passwords or ID documents by ensuring you always close your dashboard when you have finished on Passbase.
- Do not take screenshots or download your users' data.
- Avoid downloading or storing personal information on your servers if there is not a specific business need. This will help reduce the attack surface of your users' assets.
- Never share your private or secret keys or your webhook encryption keys. Only store these keys in highly protected storage locations, such as a Secrets Manager.
Which browser do you recommend that I use?
We recommend you use Firefox. Firefox uses a master password, which allows you to save your usernames and passwords, and access them securely online. Without a master password, anyone who has access to your computer can access your accounts.
Since the master password is not set as a default, you will have to enable it. After that, you will be able to autofill usernames and passwords, while keeping all your passwords secure.
If you would like to use a browser other than Firefox, we recommend installing a password manager service.
