Having a strong password, as described in an earlier post, can save you from a long list of problems such as losing commissions, having your skype account hijacked and losing access to your email account. Yes, all three examples have happened to countless people unfortunately.
One fault of creating a password is using all lowercase characters. The difference of ‘password’ versus ‘paSSwoRd’ can actually make a big difference. But, refer to the earlier post to understand how to create a strong, unique password.
You know those 2 or 3 passwords you religiously use on a countless number of websites? Well, let this be a warning that if you practice this type of account security, or lack thereof, you shouldn’t be shocked if you face account fraud or unauthorized access.
Unfortunately there are platforms (sometimes called “scripts”) that are the base to websites such as WordPress or Joomla, or in our case TE’s. Sadly these platforms don’t always provide great security with your data so it’s important to take precautions.
