I recently transferred to a different registrar. The transfer is under process. Before proceeding with the transfer, I turned off the Theft Protection on at the origin so that the transfer could proceed to the receiving registrar.
Now the receiving registrar tells me that it would take around 7 days for the transfer to complete. I have also received a notification from the current registrar that the transfer has been initiated.
However, I am now concerned if I should (or could) leave the Theft Protection turned off? I think that turning it on again would interfere with successful completion of the transfer, but I am not sure about that. I tried searching for documents on both the registrar's documentations and on the Web in general, but couldn't come to a conclusion.
What is the recommended practise here? Am I at risk with keeping the Theft Protection turned off? Ir is that something that's expected for the transfer to go successfully?
