    Recently there has been a sharp increase in the number of members reporting that their Yahoo and Hotmail accounts have been hacked.

    To help protect yourself please review the information in the following guides:


    Summary: Create passwords with upper and lower case letters, numbers, and punctuation and change your password at regular intervals.


    Summary: Keep the software on your computer up to date and never share your passwords with anyone!

    Different email providers have different security measures. Take a couple minutes to configure your account recovery options including security questions & answers, alternate email addresses, and mobile phone numbers that are allowed to receive password reset requests. A little time now can help save you a lot of frustration and could even protect you from permanently losing access to your email account.
