Hi, I have a website with Akeeba Backup Pro and Admintools installed and the Download ID entered as required for updates. I am now passing a backup of this website on for someone else to take over, but how do I prevent them from using my Download ID for future updates? Will this just not work once they restore the backup? Thanks

Remove the Download ID before taking a backup / handing over the site. Remove all old backups; if you are passing the administration to someone else they don't need your old backups.

If these are non–options for you, come to our site, log in, go to Add–on Download IDs and regenerate your Download ID (it's the yellow button next to it with an icon that looks like repeat / recycle). You will need to update all your remaining sites with the new Download ID, though.

Thanks Nicholas, your first option should be fine for me.
