    3.  Avoid using personal information such as your name, business name, date of birth, or phone number in your password as this makes it easy for someone to crack your password who knows you well.

    4.  Never disclose your password to anyone and even if you have to, make sure to change it as soon as possible.

    5.  Don’t keep the same password for all your social media accounts and in case you are facing difficulty in remembering all the passwords, you can use a password manager for that matter as that will also take care of the security of your password.

    6.  Keep on changing your password from time to time to avoid getting your account hacked.
