 +====== Securing MINIX ======
 +
 +===== Accounts =====
 +
 +By default, the main user account on MINIX is the //root// account. Using the root account risks the security of your computer system. It is safer to use unprivileged user accounts, only to become a "​superuser"​ when necessary. Please see [[.:​managinguseraccounts|Managing User Accounts]] for more information.
 +
 +===== Third-party Software =====
 +
 +There is always some risk when installing third-party software. Please see the warning in the manual page for //​pkg_add(1)//​ for an explanation and suggestions to reduce the chance of installing malicious software.
