Use a Strong password
You must use a strong password, 12+ characters. We recommend using a password phrase with numbers and special characters. A phrase is much easier to remember. For example, HumptyDumptysatonthewa11b00mboom$%. It’s important to make the phrase unique to you personally. If you use something common like this example hackers are thinking the same thing. Remember you only spend a few minutes creating your password. Hackers are working 24 x 7 on cracking people’s passwords.
Don’t clink a link in email
Anytime your password is required to login to any of your web site accounts (i.e. email, bank, etc) never click on a link that is in an email or on an unknown web site. Always open a fresh browser window and enter the URL of the site you want to go to. For example, if you get an email from your bank, an insurance company, your email service provider or any company asking you to login with your password. They may ask you to update your information, or tell you something is expired, anything to get you to log in. Do not click a link in an email. Hackers can send very sophisticated emails that look just like companies you normally do business with. So, to be safe open a new browser window and type in a URL you want to go to (For example enter the URL www.mybank.com. Then go to the section where asked you to login to your account)
