Securing your server account details should always be a top priority. If you are using Godaddy's Domain/Hosting service and if you want to give access to other users to your account, you can easily do that using Godaddy's AccountExec Service.
AccountExec can be used to give access to other people to your account without giving them details about your username and password.

The person receives an email invitation to become your AccountExec. This email contains the link to accept the AccountExec invitation. The AccountExec should have a godaddy account or else will have to create one to accept the invitation.Once AccountExec accepts the invitation, you can assign domain names and other services for them to manage.
You can create a new folder for a particular domain that you want to assign to your AccountExec. Once you assign your AccountExec a folder to manage, all other folders are kept hidden, thus maintaining privacy.
