  • Be aware of security compromises by frequently changing your online passwords and being smart about the passwords you choose.

    The Better Business Bureau has some recommendations to help protect your identity:

    • Secure your accounts: Ask for protection beyond passwords. Many account providers now offer additional ways for you verify who you are before you conduct business on that site.
    • Make passwords long and strong: Combine capital and lowercase letters with numbers and symbols to create a more secure password.
    • Unique account, unique password: Separate passwords for every account helps to thwart cybercriminals.
    • Write it down and keep it safe: Everyone can forget a password. Keep a list that’s stored in a safe, secure place away from your computer.
    • Own your online presence: When available, set the privacy and security settings on websites to your comfort level for information sharing. It’s ok to limit how and with whom you share information.

    BBB also suggests choosing passwords that are phrases (for instance, ilovetofish) and making each letter O into a zero to make the password more complex. Look into password management software to help you keep track of really “long and strong” passwords.
