Why do I need security on my database? Well, you don't want just anyone being able to see or edit your data. FileMaker allows you to edit the security of your solution to a very fine detail. But for now, if you're new to hosting, some basic usernames and passwords will do. Please review this PDF from FileMaker on security and how to implement it.
