How to secure your 123RF account

1. Steer clear of easy-to-guess words as passwords.
Avoid using common passwords such as "password", "qwerty" and "abc123" to make it harder for others to guess your credentials. Unsure if your password is a common password? Check out this list of the most common passwords. You should also refrain from using information that you share publicly on social media such as pet names, birthdate, address and so on.
2. Avoid using the same password on different sites.
In the event someone or a website gets hacked, attackers could potentially reuse those credentials on other websites where you have an account. It’s always advisable to use a unique password on each site to prevent further damage.

LastPass and 1Password are some popular password management tools to help you manage and remember those passwords. For a free alternative, you can also check out BitWarden and KeePass. These tools will help to store and encrypt your password, as well as make it faster for you to log in to websites.
3. Use long, complex but meaningful passwords.
Use at least 8 characters or more with a mix of lowercase, uppercase, numbers and symbols to create a meaningful sentence that you can also easily remember. For example, "The_Internet_Is_Full_0f_C4t5" but with less generic sentences, and personal to you.
4. Browse in a secure, reliable network.
Be mindful of where you are accessing your account. Public wifi spots in coffee shops, internet cafes and the airport are not 100% secure, and can be hijacked by malicious users to steal your information. Always use your own internet data and devices while browsing sensitive websites such as banking services in public spaces, and use a VPN service if possible to ensure your connection is well encrypted.
