Security practices

  • Make sure you use a highly secure password for your Nucleus login. Anaconda recommends using memorable but unguessable passwords of the kind dreamed up by Randall Munroe of XKCD. There’s even a Python package to generate them. A good alternative is to use completely random passwords of at least 16 alphanumeric characters and to store them in a password manager like Keepass.
  • Verify your email address to reset your Nucleus password if you forget it.
  • Look out for phishing. Anaconda will never send you an email asking for your password. Also, check the address bar in your browser before typing in your password!
  • Don’t leave a device that’s logged in to Anaconda Notebooks unattended in a public area.
  • If working with sensitive information in a public place, use a privacy screen on your device to discourage strangers from viewing your screen.
