It's a good idea to set a password for your company database. Because then, unless it's reset, the database contents which may include sensitive financial records or client records will be inaccessible unless the password is known to the end user. Alternatively, the database password can be reset by us at Sage 50 service and support directly (for Sage 50 CA call: 1-888-222-8985 or for the Sage 50 US version call 1-877-481-0341), but this is only if the right documentation proving ownership of the data is provided.
Make sure to choose a password that is hard to guess. Avoid anything cheesy and guessable.
