How to protect yourself against being ‘pwned’?
1. Never use the same password for multiple site logins.
By using the same email and password combination, you are giving a key to hackers to enter every account that uses them as your login credentials.
Don’t give them entrance to everywhere because they were successful on one site.
2. Make sure your new passwords are robust in quality
Don’t make a hacker’s job easy.
You can find random password generators on-line.
My preference is to use a password manager. 1Password is the one I recommend. It allows you to create secure passwords and store them securely.
Never forget a password or login again and keep hackers out of your accounts.
3. Enable 2-factor authentication
Enabling 2-factor authentication (2FA) makes the process logging into accounts more secure.
Adding another layer to your security is the purpose of two-factor authentication.
My favorite two-factor authentication tool is DUO. You can find it by clicking here. https://duo.com
4. Change passwords regularly
I recommend that you change your password at least once every six months.
It will protect your account info compromised through data breaches in the future that might put you at risk.
