  • Use a strong password that includes numbers, capitol letters, and optionally some punctuation. Example of a strong password: #eXamPLe675!

  • Do not save your password or "auto login" on public machines such as libraries, schools, work, or friends devices. Always log out at the Company Website when you are done.
