- Change Your Password Frequently. If you think your account security may have been breached, change your account password immediately. Learn How to change your password.
- Make Your Password Unique. To prevent someone accessing multiple accounts, it is effective to have different passwords for each account. Also, a good password will include a combination of letters and numbers - this makes it more difficult for people to guess the password.
