Tips on keeping your password safe.
Don't reveal your passwords to others. If someone absolutely must have access to your account, change the password before you grant them access, then change it again after their access is no longer required.
Change reset passwords. You might encounter a situation where you're locked out of your account and can't remember the password you registered it under. If that happens, reset your password. As soon as the password reset takes effect and you are able to login again, change the password.
