Toggle Password Access

When you provide SSH/SFTP details to your clients or developers, they can access SSH/SFTP with a password or an SSH key.

Using an SSH key is highly recommended, as it is much more secure compared to using passwords. This means you can turn off password access on your server if you wish. You can also re-enable it whenever you want.
