Passwords MeetEdgar is an online company, and so passwords are the only protection we have from bad people getting in! It's vital that all of our passwords for all services that we use are impossible to guess. 🔓Use 1Password to store your passwords and/or to share with the team 🔓The randomly generated password must be at least 8 characters long and have all character types allowed (since you're using 1Password, so you should never have to actually type this password in). 🔓Use 1Password to generate a unique password for every account you have (don't use the same password twice!)
Your personal social media accounts are your own, to express your own opinions. However, everything you post online can affect the public image of our company. Be mindful of that.

If you are using a personal account to act as a representative of our brand, use careful judgment. If you post something on Facebook or Twitter specifically about your role in our company, ask yourself if what you're going to say is something we would share on our official accounts. ****
