Keeping your K9 installation secure

Symptom

You want to make sure that your K9 Web Protection is secure. 

Solution

Use the following guidelines to maximize the effectiveness of your K9 implementation and keep it secure.

  • Never have your browser remember your K9 password. Otherwise, there is the potential for a non-authorized user to be able to modify the K9 agent using your saved password.
  • Make sure that you have a private email account that only you have access to. Otherwise, sensitive information in your email could be used to modify or disable the K9 agent.
  • If multiple user accounts are setup on your computer, make sure only your account has Admin privileges, as Admin privileges are required to modify or disable K9.
  • If only one account is used on the computer, make sure that account does not have Admin privileges.
