On top of the tips below, please be reminded of the following:

  • Do not use the same password across all your accounts otherwise one compromised account means access to all your accounts
  • Do not share your passwords as much as possible
  • Use another layer of protection on top of your password by adding two-factor authentication. This means when someone is trying to access your account, the person must get a code that will be sent to you via app, SMS or call to access the account
  • Use a password manager to register all your passwords. This way you do not need to write your passwords that can potentially be visible to other people
  • Be mindful when you are answering recovery question when you are setting up your account. The rule of thumb is never use recovery questions that are answerable by basic or common information that can be found on your social media accounts because it will be easy to guess.
