Catanai Security Guide

 

In this guide I will be teaching you how to achieve maximum security. With some simple steps, you can avoid anyone unwanted gaining access to your account.

 

Step 1: Password

 

Spoiler

 

The first step is choosing a good password that no one will be able to guess. When creating your account, you are prompted with some guidelines on how to create a good password;

  • 8 or more characters                                               
  • Mixture of letters and numbers
  • Mixture of upper and lowercase
  • Special characters
  • Non-dictionary words

Following these guidelines is essential for a strong password. It also tells you how strong your password is:

You should always choose a password which is "Very Strong", and avoid "Very Weak", "Weak", "Fair" and "Strong". When you have a password that meets the points listed below, you are ready for step 2. 

  • Makes use of the guidelines listed above
  • Is a "Very Strong" password

 

 

Step 2: Two Step Authenticator

Setting up Two Step Authenticator is both easy and the best way to secure your account. It uses an authenticator application which generates a code every 30 seconds, and every time you want to log on the account you have to enter this generated code. To activate the authenticator, hover over your name, and go to "Account Settings"

Then go to "Account Security". It will then ask you for your password. Simply fill in the well-made and secure password you created earlier

You are now able to activate Google Authenticator. You will have to download the "Google Authenticator" application on your mobile device. Once that's done, click on "Enable".

This will open the set up which will guide you through how you add the authenticator.

Open your Google Authenticator application, and press the "+" icon in the bottom right of the application. Choose the "Scan QR-code" option and scan the QR-code in the set up screen. (If this doesn't work, click the "Not able to scan the QR code?" option in the set up. This will open up a new screen with a key. Click the "+" icon like before but this time you choose the other option instead of "Scan QR-code". The account name is the email address used when creating your account, and the key is the key shown in the set up. It should be set as "timebased".

You will now have a new account in your Google Authenticator application. To finish the Authenticator set up, enter the code generated by your application. Note: for the code to work, you need to add a space between the first 3 digits and the last three digits, as shown below.

To make sure its successfully activated, check if it says "enabled". If it does, then congratulations, your account is secure! You will now be asked to enter a code whenever you log onto your account.

Step 3: Changing password on existing account


 

Spoiler

 

If you already have an account, and wish to change your password, simply go to your account settings, then "Password". Enter your current password, and the password you would like to change to.

Use GRC >:( 

"no"

KeePass does the exact same thing and allows you to save login information 

GRC is useless if you have nowhere to put it
