Fraud Prevention Tips

Keep Your Passwords Safe

Good password hygiene helps ensure that your online identity and accounts are well protected against unauthorized access and fraud. Follow these guidelines when choosing or updating your passwords: 

  • Remember to choose uncommon passwords, change them regularly, and don’t share them with others 
  • Strong passwords are good passwords. A minimum of 10 characters is recommended, but more is always better 
  • Do not use any part of your name, username, initials, or sequential numbers 1,2,3. 
  • Do not use common phrases like “password” or “11111” 
  • Remember to always use unique passwords for your accounts and include special characters such as $, # or &, preferably in the middle of your password 
  • Enable multi-factor authentication when possible
