For safety measure, create a Budget under Billing in your AWS web console with 2 factor authentication! This will set the maximum how much they can charge you monthly (or quarterly, yearly). More info about Budgets and it's types (be advised that some budget types only trigger notifications, not service halt): docs.aws.amazon.com/awsaccountbill...

This should be your first thing when you register on AWS.


budgets don't put a hardcap on your spend/usage.. it just sends out alerts based on thresholds you set.

you mention 'some budgets only trigger notification, not service halt' I'm not aware of any budget that halts service, please enlighten me
