Set up Authentication
Once you have Prowlarr installed you will want to login and set up the provided Authentication for added security.
- Login to your Prowlarr install and navigate to Settings > General.
- In the Security section select from the Authentication dropdown Forms (Login Page)
- Enter your desired username and password (these details do not have to be the same as your QuickBox credentials, however, best practice is to at least make the password different)

In the same Security section as posted above, opt to change the Certificate Validation dropdown from Enabled to Disabled for Local Addresses. This will ensure any other applications on the server will have no issues communicating with Prowlarr over SSL([https://][:443]) on the localhost.
