Keep yourself and your accounts safe by not using the same username or password on more than one online account. This is an added security step to protect you from potential hackers. If you use the same password everywhere, a single leak of that password puts all your accounts at risk.
Using the same password for more than one account is like having one key to unlock every door you use. If a bad guy steals or copies the key, every door is vulnerable. Don’t make it easy to get to your information should one of your accounts becomes compromised.
Ideally, you should use a password manager that makes unique, hard to guess passwords for every account you set-up, including your online banking, grocery
store and video purchasing accounts. Going through a few extra steps to protect your online information can seem inconvenient, but it will give you a peace of mind.
