Recommended Posts

This guide contains the basic information needed to keep your Manic account secure. It doesn't require much time or effort to secure your  account. Here's a few simple steps that you can follow to make sure that your Manic  account is as secure as possible:
Secure your passwords
Passwords are the first line of defense against cyber criminals. It’s crucial to pick strong passwords that are different for each of your important accounts and it is good practice to update your passwords regularly. Follow these tips to create strong passwords and keep them secure.
Use a unique password for each of your important accounts like email and online banking
Choosing the same password for each of your online accounts is like using the same key to lock your home, car and office – if a criminal gains access to one, all of them are compromised. So don’t use the same password for an online newsletter as you do for your email or bank account. It may be less convenient, but picking multiple passwords keeps you safer.
This is extremely important. You may not realize it, but a majority of internet users use the SAME password for nearly every account they use. Remember: Staff members will NEVER ask for your password. Do not give it to anyone, not even your best friend.
Do NOT use the same password as an account on a previous server. That server may have had it's User account database leaked - meaning all accounts and passwords are compromised.
Passwords and Bank PINs - Use strong passwords that contain both numbers and letters (with uppercase and lowercase). Do not share your passwords and bank PINs with others, and do not store them on your computer. If you need to write them down, store your list in a secure, private place. You should change your passwords and bank PINs regularly and use a different password and bank PIN for each of your accounts.

In Conclusion:
Make sure to follow  this Good Security Practices:
your Antivirus software active and updated!
Keep your Operating System updated!
Be careful with shared systems!
