Examples of Threats:

  • When a password is stolen, a thief or hacker can easily access your private information and use your account.

  • Using the “remember password” function on your computer makes you vulnerable, especially if your laptop is stolen.

Our Tips:

  • Create strong passwords that use random combinations of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and characters.
