Freeola Password Change Guide

By Freeola Support on 15th July, 2016 | 0 Comment(s) | 3 out of 4 people found this article useful.

Welcome to the Freeola Internet customer support pages. This guide is designed to help with changing your password for any Freeola service. For more internet help topics please visit our main Support Page.

 

The following guide will give you information on changing the password for the following Freeola services: MyFreeola Control Panel, Freeola Internet, Email Addresses, Webspace and MySQL.

 

Important: We recommend that you change your passwords if you suspect they may have been compromised in any way.

 

Advice on Selecting a Secure Password:
In the interests of security we at Freeola advise that you use the most secure password possible. General tips include avoiding people's names, places, dictionary words and birthdays as these are easily guessed. We recommend that all passwords be combinations of letters and numbers (maybe even with varying capitalisation), to make them even harder to guess.
