As mentioned earlier in our blog post, it is very common that online users store their passwords in their FTP programs. Although such practice is very convenient, if their computers are infected with virus, the virus can examine the infected computers and FTP program. Hackers can then access to the FTP program and find the credentials (and you can imagine the rest of the story). Hence, it is strongly recommended NOT to use the “remember passwords” function in FTP program and internet browsers. In this blog post, we will showcase another alternative to prevent passwords stolen.

The below video tutorial teaches you how to upload and unzip files to your website through File Manager.
