One of the most common reason people get hacked is from weak passwords. Always use a random password generator no matter how inconvenient it is and don't reuse passwords. Just have a password manager to keep track of all of them. I'm a little paranoid about them so I make sure to use one that stays offline.yeah shame we have to go to all these lengths for security. Dark Web.....must be the dogs or gnats. I got my password hacked and sent to the Dark Web via Cox Communications. They had a bunch of clients who got hacked. Luckily no damage that I can tell yet but my IT guy got me on track......always use 2 factor authentication when you can. I'm sure the bastards will find a way around that as well....wtf. Stay safe , do you know what's in YOUR wallet???
I work with clients/business owners and sometimes I need to access some of their accounts and you wouldn't believe the ridiculous passwords they have to important accounts like "businessname123" and they reuse them for everything. I often wonder how these people became successful lol.
