Remembering passwords can be tricky, but setting effective and secure passwords on all the websites you use is vital in combating possible fraudulent activity using your personal details. It’s best to avoid using the same password for each of your online accounts, because if a criminal gains access to it, all your accounts could be at risk. Multiple passwords keep you safer. When you set a password, it’s a good idea to use a mix of numbers and characters, and something that’s very personal to you. Most sites these days will set a minimum number of characters to use, but do avoid using obvious phrases like “password”, or your name, or phone number. It’s a good idea to change your passwords on a regular basis, especially for sites you use frequently and which involve financial transactions. If you ever get a request to reveal your password for an online site, don’t respond as legitimate sites and services won’t ask you to send them passwords via email. You may be tempted to share passwords with close family, but do keep in mind there’s always a risk they could pass information on inadvertently or share it with someone else. You can re-set your password on at any time by signing into your account and choosing the Edit your password option. If you've forgotten your password, just enter your email address on the 'Forgotten your password' page, and we'll email you your password information. Then simply follow the instructions in the email to change your password. It’s a good idea at this point to change your password to something that’s as secure as possible.
