    435 To avoid putting Tor clients at risk when operating multiple relays you **must** set a proper [https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en#MyFamily MyFamily] value and have a valid **ContactInfo** in your torrc configuration. The `MyFamily` setting is simply telling Tor clients what Tor relays are controlled by a single entity/operator/organization, so they don't use them in multiple position in a single circuit.

    443443Instead of doing so manually for big operators we recommend to automate the MyFamily setting via a
    444 [[TorRelayGuide#ConfigurationManagement]] solution. Manually managing MyFamily for big relaygroups is error prone and can put Tor clients at risk.
