Ecwid sends an email notification when you sign in to your Control Panel from a new device, browser, or a different location. We highly recommend you review these notifications to make sure your account is safe.
In this article:
You can receive a New Login notification if:
- you sign in for the first time on a new computer, phone or browser,
- you use your browser's incognito or private browsing mode
- you clear the cookies and/or cash in your browser.
If you recognize the login details, you can ignore this message.
If you don’t recognize the login details from this notification, someone may have accessed your Ecwid account without your permission. If you have any doubts, we recommend taking the following steps to secure your data immediately:
- Change the password of the email account you use for Ecwid – it’s the email address Ecwid notified you at. Also, make sure two-factor authentication is enabled for your account.
- Change your Ecwid password in your Ecwid Control Panel → My Profile. If you can’t log in into your Control Panel, reset the password immediately.
- If you use Staff Accounts, revise access in your Ecwid Control Panel → My Profile → Staff Accounts and remove the profiles that no longer require access to your store.
- Check your account details (PayPal email and account ID) to make sure your payment providers in your Ecwid Control Panel → Payment are valid.
- Review your general account settings in your Ecwid Control Panel → Settings to ensure that all the information is correct.
