Passwords are an essential security feature in the Afriex app. They are used to authenticate users and ensure that only authorized individuals have access to their app, sensitive data, and transactions. Strong passwords are crucial to protect against unauthorized access and theft. TABLE OF CONTENTS Password creation Pin code creation Password Reset Password Creation The password must be unique and not generic. It should contain upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and special characters to be accepted during account creation. Here are some helpful tips; Use a strong and unique password: A strong password should be at least 12 characters long and include a mix of upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and special characters. It should not be a word that can be found in a dictionary or contain personal information such as your name or date of birth. It is also essential to use a unique password for each account, as using the same password across multiple accounts increases the risk of a data breach. Use a password manager: A password manager is a tool that stores all of a user's passwords in an encrypted format. Users only need to remember one master password to access all of their accounts.

Pin code creation To ensure maximum account security, we recommend using a unique, strong pin code instead of 1111, 0000, or 1234. Avoid common passwords: Common passwords are easily guessed by hackers. Customers should avoid using such pin codes and choose something more unique. By following these tips, you can create strong and unique passwords that are much harder to guess or crack, ensuring the security of your Afriex account. Password Reset To reset your password, Click on the forgot password, a reset link will be sent to the email registered on your account with Afriex. Please follow the instructions when you visit the reset link to create a new password.
