Description of problem

Hello,

I Am Having Issues With Hackers And Guests Getting Into My Forum And Not Doing Anything But Sitting On My Pages And Potentially Stealing My Data When I Am Not Looking, Not Online, And Attempting To Log Into The Master Account At All, Or Any Of My Other Accounts In Order To Steal Data.

Is There A Way To Block All Access For Guests At All Times And Also To Protect My Accounts From Hackers Logging In, Especially To The Master Account -- The Founder Account?

Thank You.

hello

if you have not given the founder's login information (password, email you used to create the forum) to anyone then you have nothing to worry about no one can hack your forum

you must set your category permissions
Administration Panel ....General ...Forum ....Categories & Forum
Go through each category permissions and uncheck the boxes for the ones you do not want to see the areas.

Good morning!

Your forum is closed to guests. Therefore, most likely the guests on your forum are search bots trying to find out information about your forum to get it to show up in search results.
Since access to the forum is closed to guests, they will not be able to get the information contained in the forum. The server does not send anything.

To protect the forum from unwanted users, you can set up administrator activation of accounts. In this case, you will be able to control the account activation process yourself (AP - Users & Groups - Users options - New accounts activation - Admin - Save). To see the list of users who are pending activation on the forum and activate the right ones: AP - Users & Groups - Inactive users

Additionally, I suggest you read our tutorials:
- Forum Security
- Forumotion : maximum security for your forums
- INTERNET SECURITY ON YOUR FORUM: Habits to be avoided!
- Help Keeping your forum safe from hackers.

I See, Thank You Very Much For Your Assistance. I Simply Thought That There Was A More Effective, Swifter Method Than Manually Blocking Guest Access.

However, I Do Also Need Some Assistance With Downloading My Data To My Computer, Due To The Compromise. Can You Assist Me? I Do Not Recall The Username And Password That Was Used To Get Into The Master Administration Panel From My Master Account, Even When I Try What I Remember, And I Get Locked Out.

Please Help. Thank You.

If you have a problem with the Founders account password you will need to make a new topic on the Connection Problems forum

Or PM a member of the team Please read here. We can only help on founders account's not any other basic account's
If your first problem is now solved please press the mark solved button that can be found at the top of this topic or just post again saying solved and we will close this case.
