5 Tips for Keeping Your Information Secure
1. Practice Good Password Safety While some hackers use sophisticated techniques to steal data, many do not need to, because their victims do not practice good password safety. Choose a strong password for all of your devices and accounts. Make it something difficult to guess, but not so difficult that you need to write it down to remember it.
