After the jailbreak, do i need to change anything, or is my phone ready to go? And is my information safe, of course i know i should only download from trusted developers on the cydia store, but is there any precautions i need to take? Just making sure before i jailbreak for the first time, thank you.

Generally speaking, you're good to go after jailbreaking. Don't need to change anything (besides re-enabling find my iphone if you disabled it to jailbreak)

However, if you install OpenSSH, remember to change your mobile and root password through terminal!

No. There's nothing wrong with that. Just make sure that you do, in fact, make a backup.
