With all that’s going on the world wide web, those who have online gaming accounts should make sure to update their passwords and secure it before anyone else gains access. Here are 3 surefire ways to make your login credentials more difficult to guess or hack.
Change Your Password Ever So Often
Start with accounts on games you play often, including those on social media or on platforms such as Steam.
It’s recommended that you change your password every month to keep potential hackers on their toes and so you can play GClub games without worry that someone might get into it and steal your hard-earned money.
If you have trouble remembering, you can use a password manager or keep them in a notepad app on your phone or computer.
Use a Complicated Password
The more specific and unique your password, the better. It’s not good to use generic phrases such as password123, or your full name as it can be easily guessed.
It’s recommended that you use a combination of letters and numbers, and throw in a special character such as an ‘@’ or ‘#’ somewhere in the middle. Having an uppercase letter helps make the password more complex and tougher to crack.
Don’t Use the Same Password on All Game Accounts
You may have created the perfect password with special characters, numbers and letters, but if they’re all the same across your accounts then all it takes is one successful hack and a domino reaction is likely to occur.
This applies the same to social media accounts and other popular e-shopping platforms. Try to have a different password for each one so there won’t be a pattern- a data breach might happen and expose you to all kinds of trouble. Similarly, you’ll want to use a password manager to keep track of each one.
