Firstly, here are some general tips:

  1. Make sure to use a password that's not easy to guess.
    Examples of bad passwords: your real name, the name of a relative/spouse/pet, your birthday or that of a relative or spouse.
  2. Do not share your password with anyone.
  3. Do not write it down where someone can find it (digitally and physically).
  4. Do not use the same password for multiple sites (Use KeePass or similar software if necessary).

If you are using a public computer (e.g. library, school, work or internet cafe) or a shared one at home, make sure the "remember me" box is unchecked. If your browser asks to remember the password and you are on a shared or public computer, say "no".

Always sign out when you leave a shared or public computer--this is also good if you're at home on your own PC and have curious children in the house.
