It seems obvious, but it’s never a good idea to use the same passwords for different email accounts, domain registrar accounts, bank accounts…etc. Whenever you need to log on to an account online, it’s best to have different complicated login passwords. If you use the same password and that is stolen by a thief, they will have access to all of your private information and can easily log into your account and take control of everything:
From the Boston Globe,
“Using the same password for multiple Web pages is the Internet-era equivalent of having the same key for your home, car and bank safe-deposit box.”
Whenever it is offered, I strongly advise that you get a security fob to add an extra layer of protection to your accounts. I have a Paypal security key (which costs just $5.00), and I have recommended that at least one domain registrar implement this level of security to protect our digital assets.
