If your information has been part of a breach, change your password immediately
. Don’t reuse passwords across services. Even slight variations on a common password (changing numbers at the end for example) is not secure.
It’s a reputable service – we recommend you sign up to be notified if any of your emails have been compromised – keeping you one step ahead of the hackers
2) Pick a good password!
The companies you have accounts with should
have good security, but inevitably some won’t.
– Using another authentication method is advised. Whether it’s a text or an email with a code to log in, MFA adds another step once you’ve entered your password correctly. Authenticator apps such as Google Authenticator as useful as well, they require you to have physical access to another device to be able to log in.
4) Password managers
– Never have to remember a password again! LastPass
is a good solution. It generates you a horribly long, complex & secure password that you don’t need to remember. For macOS users, you can use the keychain
to generate & remember passwords for you.
