Here are a few things you can do to help keep your account safe:
Pick a Strong Password
Use a combination of at least seven numbers, letters and punctuation marks (like ! and &). It's best if the password is different from other passwords you use elsewhere. Never share your password to someone you don't know and trust.
Secure Your Email Account
Anyone who can read your email could figure out a way to access your Common Areas account. Change the passwords for all of your email accounts and make sure that no two are the same.
Log Out of Common Areas
Always log out of your account when you use a computer or phone you share with other people. Don’t check the "Remember Me" box when logging in from a public computer, as this will keep you logged in even after you close the browser window. See How Do I Logout for detailed instructions.
