Hackers are everywhere, but they’re not content with just hacking into banks and stealing the money. They are after you too. Once they get access to your facebook or email account, they can read all your private messages, send out rude messages that claim to be from you, and generally ruin your life.
Often they will break into an account because the same password has been reused on different sites.
To help prevent hackers and have a happy ending, follow these awesomely cool and amazing tips that will blow your mind!
Don’t reuse passwords!
Perhaps the biggest contributor is the fact that many people will reuse passwords on multiple sites. Each site and service should have its own unique password.
2. Don’t reuse passwords
Like seriously, don’t do it.
3. Subscribe to haveibeenpwned.com
Be notified if any of your email accounts end up in a breach dump.
4. Enable two-factor authentication
So that even if someone guesses your password, they can’t get in with out your fob.
5. Enable two-step verification
Accept that a lot of sites don’t provide or support two-factor authentication, so settle for the less attractive two-step verification.
6. Accept your fate
You discover that not only can you not enable two-step verification, but the website prohibits long passwords and special characters.
Remember I said there would be a happy ending?
