- Use a different password for each website that you use
- Keep your password secret
- Ensure the password is at least 8 characters in length and uses at least one capital letter and one number.
- Banks and similar institutions will never ask you to share your password with them (i.e. in an e-mail).
If you have used the same password that you use on your bank account on any other sites or may have shared your password with someone else, I recommend that you change your password, to stay safe.
