Are you using the same password on LinkedIn that you use to access online banking systems? Is your Facebook password eerily similar to the password you use to access your investment site? Password re-use is rampant and it’s no wonder – we have so many to remember at home and at work.
It is recommended to use strong passwords that are changed frequently. Also, avoid using the same user ID and password across multiple sites and applications. For example, if you are exposed to spyware or Yahoo has a breach that exposes your credentials, those credentials are going to be tried on other popular sites; Facebook, eBay, PayPal, American Express, etc. The goal is to exploit personally identifiable information or obtain access to financial related credentials.
Since we can’t always avoid being compromised and losing our credentials, we have to do what we can to slow the hacking process down and reduce the risk. If you feel your credentials have been compromised, FBTC is available to assist with disabling your online access and resetting your online banking password.
