Making sure your M Media password is secure

Your M Media password secures your M Media account. With this, sensitive information such as your billing history, your files, and other info is protected from malicious entry. Additionally, if you are an M Media customer, you may also be using your M Media account to log in to your own website, so it also protects everything there.

Because of this, it is very important you keep your password safe.

Tips on a safe password

  • Do not use any passwords that have been compromised
    • When you set an M Media account password, we will automatically check that it isn’t on a list of compromised passwords (haveibeenpwnd.com). If it has, you won’t be able to use this password for M Media services.
  • Use passwords of sufficient complexity and length with a password managing app
    • Include numbers, symbols, and letters. Better yet, if your password manager suggests a password – use that.
  • Do not use the same password twice
    • If your password gets compromised somewhere, then it can easily be compromised again. Do not use the same password twice for anything on the web.
  • Do not write down your password anywhere
    • From state-run spy programs to power-plants, all have been compromised because someone wrote down their password somewhere. Use a password manager – for example, the already included password manager on iOS is great. There are plenty alternatives to choose from as well.
  • Do not share your account details with anyone, ever
    • Sometimes it may seem easier to just send the login details to a colleague so they can check something on your behalf. The problem with this is that now your colleague bears equal responsibility of keeping your password safe – which is both an unreasonable and an unfair expectation to bestow upon a colleague. Most sites let you add users instead – so do that.

      If you need to share M Media files or data regarding your account with someone, send us an email and we’ll help you out.
  • Use password autofills
    • Password autofills protect from prying eyes, key-loggers, and forensic fingerprint analysis. If your password is being autofilled, it’s also a good indication you’re using a password manager – which is one of our earlier tips.
