When you first start iCal, your calendars have no security enabled. This means that anyone can view your calendar, add or change events on you calendar, or even change settings on your calendar.

You enable security for your calendar by going to the Security page from your calendar's Admin page. Click here to see the Admin page for the Default calendar: Admin page for: Default, then click on the link: Security (Or go directly to it: Security page for: Default )

To start, you will probably want to make sure that no one else can change your security or other administration settings, so fill out the Settings section by toggling the UserID/Password required to change settings radio button and then filling out the UserID and Password for this. Remember the UserID and Password that you enter. You will need this to change any settings in the future!!

Note: The Professional version of iCal has a Super-User login Name and Password that allows access to all features of all calendars. This Name and Password is the Registration Name and Registration Number assigned when ordering the professional version of iCal.

Also, check out the Tips section at the bottom of the Security page for more information.
