Stop the Hackers in their Tracks: Strengthen Your Online Presence with ID Security
How Do Data Leaks Happen?
We are all guilty of recycling passwords for once in our life or maybe we are still doing it. I don't blame you. It's convenient to log in across different websites and there's no need to memorize multiple passwords, right? However, this poor practice is one of the most common reasons our personal information can be easily leaked online. Cybercriminals use social engineering, fake websites, or phishing text/email to gather info from prospective victims.
In most cases, when your password is compromised, it can lead to hacked accounts when you tend to use the same password across all your logins.
