Logging out on every device after accessing your books should become your habit because you might be using a desktop for accessing your books on the cloud and after leaving it logged in, stealing your data will become effortless.
So always log out of your system after each session because you can take the load of logging in after every session, but you cannot take the risk of making your data vulnerable.
Always use a strong password
You might be thinking that the instruction to set a strong password is kindergarten’s lesson for someone already present in the world of internet, but even with so much buzz about setting a strong password, most of the people don’t apply it.
You should never use a simple password like your mobile number, your name, your hometown name for accessing the QuickBooks cloud hosting solution because such weak passwords can easily be cracked and if such thing happens then it can turn out to be a disaster for your company.
Have control over multi-user access
QuickBooks cloud hosting comes with a great feature of multi-user access which allows you to add multiple people in the QuickBooks and they are able to work together with real time updates.
But you should be very much precise while giving access to different users and you should also restrict them to certain areas of the accounting software so that even after giving access to different users, you still will be able to keep your most important data secure.
