Segurança Externa é qualquer medida de segurança que esteja fora do controle do xat e esteja nas mãos do usuário, como o uso de uma senha forte, e proteger o seu e-mail.
Portanto, estas dicas não estão relacionadas diretamente com o xat e só depende dos usuários a segui-los ou não. Por favor, note que estas dicas são essenciais para proteger a sua conta, recomendamos o uso delas.
Remember that xat will never ask you your personal information.
Passwords are the key words of account security and having a strong password is essential while using xat or any other website. Having a strong password prevents people from guessing and brute forcing your password.
To make sure that no one can guess your password, avoid using your name or names of family members, your username, birthday, repeated characters, or any common words found in the dictionary. Remember to use a different password from your email.
Nota: No xat, quaisquer caracteres não alfanuméricos serão removidos de sua senha, para garantir que ele contenha apenas caracteres alfanuméricos (a-z, A-Z, 0-9).
Making a Strong Password
Making a strong password can be difficult, however generally a strong password consists of at least 8 characters that are a combination of letters (both uppercase and lowercase) and numbers. The more characters your password contains, the stronger it will be.
You can also use the following generator which will take any input and turn it into a secure password (which works with that) that you can use for your account: http://crypo.pw/secure-mpg1-online
Regularly Changing Your Password
In a fast paced and forever changing place like the Internet, it is recommended that you change your password every 3 - 6 months so that in the event there is any sort of data breach, your account will likely not be affected.

Verificação em 2 etapas
The main email providers allow you to use 2-step verification to secure your email accounts. It requires you to give to your provider your phone number. Each time someone (including you) tries to access your email account, you will be sent a security token to your phone to then enter on your email login which will allow you to continue. This way, only someone with your phone is able to login into your email account.
