Dear Valued Customers,

In light of the rampant data breaches in the Philippines, it is crucial to understand that using IP Whitelisting or Ignoring can increase the risk of data breaches. Hackers can exploit these methods if any of your devices are compromised, as they could gain access through whitelisted or ignored IPs. Therefore, we advise against relying heavily on these practices and instead recommend more robust security measures.

Even if an IP address is whitelisted, there is a chance that your network can be compromised if a hacker has already infiltrated your network/device. This is why we are strict about IP blocking and other security protocols to protect your accounts and data.

We strongly encourage educating both clients and their users, especially those accessing emails, about the potential risks. It's important they understand that their devices could be compromised, allowing hackers to exploit trusted IPs. This knowledge is essential for ensuring everyone follows best practices and understands why we enforce strict security measures.

While IP Whitelisting and Ignoring can improve security, they have significant downsides. We recommend balancing them with other security measures like 2FA or multi-factor authentication. The use of IP blocking adds an essential layer of defense, especially in the context of increasing data breaches in the Philippines.

Thank you for your continued trust in our services. We look forward to providing you with an even better hosting experience.
