Create RAM users by using an Alibaba Cloud account
The leak of your Alibaba Cloud account information gives rise to serious security risks because the Alibaba Cloud account has full permissions. Therefore, we recommend that you do not disclose your Alibaba Cloud account and password information when you authorize others to access your Alibaba Cloud resources. You can create RAM users and grant them only the required access permissions. Users who are not Alibaba Cloud account owners or administrators can access resources as RAM users. For more information about RAM users, see RAM user access and Custom permissions.
