Protect Your Password
The following tips can help keep your password secure:
You can further protect your passwords by making sure that your virus-scanning software is kept up to date, and by running anti-spyware programs. These programs can help protect you from viruses or other malware that could compromise your identity -- even though your computer may seem to be working fine.
If you use Microsoft Windows, make sure your Windows updates are enabled to help keep your operating system protected. You can learn more about Microsoft Windows updates at Microsofts website.
Use extra caution when entering your password on a computer that doesn't belong to you. Viruses, spyware, or the browser’s settings might be used to compromise your account by recording your user name and password.
