Password

How to find this setting:

  1. On the main console, click the Settings button.
  2. Under Other Settings, click Password.
  3. Mark the Enable password protection to prevent authorized changes checkbox to set a password.
  4. Provide an email address where you want the password sent if you forget it.
  5. Type your case-sensitive password in the Password field.
  6. Retype the same case-sensitive password in the Confirm password field.
