    Hello there

    Excuse me if this is posted in the wrong section (security) but this seemed the most relevant place to ask my question.


    The question is if an IP address is added in WHM to Security Center » Security Questions » Add or Remove Recognized IP Addresses
    does that result in no ip address being recognized for a root login, other than the IP address that is added in there?


    Thank you in advance!

    Hello :)

    Yes, that is the intended behavior of this feature. Any IP address that is not added as a recognized IP, or has not yet answered the security questions will not be authorized.

    Thank you.
