  • Suggestions On Making Online Accounts More Secure.

    Recently i've had some special attention from some "hackers" overseas. Russian it seems specially.

    They got into my Rockstar online account first which had a reasonable password (mix of upper / lowercase letters and numbers)
    Then they tried my EA online account but couldn't because it has SMS authentication set up.

    That was all last week, i changed the passwords and i thought that was the end of it.

    Today they managed to breach my Instagram account (silly me had forgot the password was the same as Rockstar's)
    And my Twitter as well. They couldn't get into my Twitter account though because of the SMS authentication.

    Any suggestions on better ways to create more robust passwords? I've never had an issue like this until now and no idea how long they're going to stay focused on me for.

              Steam, Facebook, Twitter, EA, Battlenet all have it turned on now.
              Too many rats out there that might try and steal your stuff.

                I personally use LastPass to generate long/complex passwords unique to every site/thing. LastPass then has 2FA to login to that.

                At the end of the day they're very unlikely to get a 16 character password that's complete gibberish
