How to Create Unique Usernames & Passwords You Can Recall Easily
Here’s why re-used and predictable passwords put you at risk
The worst password you can use is one that you’ve used before. And here’s why…
There are over 5.5 BILLION sets of stolen credentials available for sale on the internet. One of yours is probably in that hoard somewhere.
Credential stuffing robots uses lists of stolen credentials and attempt to log in automatically to thousands of accounts simultaneously using those stolen credentials. Password reuse makes this an easy way for scammers to gain access, and takeover, your accounts (such as social media, banking and email)
How do I know if my credentials have been stolen?
It doesn’t matter. If you are reusing credentials then you need to assume that either
Your credentials have been stolen or
Your credentials will be stolen at some point in the future
If either of these things are true, then you are at risk.
To avoid having your accounts accessed by scammers, you should go ahead and change the password on each account that you want to keep secure to something unique. Your new passwords should not be based on dictionary words. They should be long (12+ characters), random and impossible to remember. The Coach's system is going to guide you through this process, and enable you to genuinely secure each account of value with a unique password that isn't stored anywhere or shared with anyone.
REMEMBER: Your accounts will remain vulnerable to attack as long as you are reusing passwords. Uniqueness is your only defence.
