Not liable for any frustrations, account lockouts, etc. Take this as some potentially beneficial information. Only trying to help.

If you are wondering how to more easily secure your online personal accounts, here are some ways:

You can use Multi-factor authentication, Two-Factor authentication, or whatever other name it may be under. Basically, for those who don’t know for whatever reason (maybe you aren’t good with technology…no big deal), it is a way to verify that it is YOU in addition to your password. For example, you can set it up so that when you login to your email, for example, it sends a text message or verification to your phone. The person trying to steal your account would also have to have your phone if they do manage to get your password (though there are ways to bypass two-factor authentication). Also, if you lose your phone or lose internet access, that could be a problem (though there is usually an offline method or other way to still verify it’s you).

  1. Article on Multi-factor authentication:

  2. Avoid using common passwords with words such as dog, cat, and so forth. Avoid adding numbers to the end of your password and/or exclamation marks. For example,                                                                                                                                                                              satandestroyer676767!

  3. You can use random letters and numbers but obviously remembering them is a problem (example):           


  4. Watch what you click on and avoid giving out data to a website that looks illegitimate (the fake website may not include the https://www .) If in doubt, I would say to wait and verify that it is indeed legitimate.
