I recently set up cron jobs with CiviCRM using wget url method through Cpanel. I set up an administrator account and used that accounts username and password. My concern is if there is any security risk with this method and if its best practice to limit that user's account to just the bare civicrm permissions - "view all contacts", "access CiviCRM", "access CiviMail".
Your feedback is appreciated.
Using latest wordpress and civicrm releases.
