There are some tips you can follow to improve your account security and be safe from potential scams:

  • Use a strong password that is different from other passwords you use and that is hard to guess by others.

  • Use two-factor authentication or verification codes to sign in to your account, if possible.

  • Update your recovery options such as your phone number or email address, so you can get back into your account if you lose access.

  • Update your software regularly, including your browser, operating system, and apps.

  • Remove any apps or extensions that you don't need or trust from your devices.

  • Avoid clicking on suspicious links or opening suspicious attachments in emails or messages.

  • Never reply to emails or messages that ask for your password or other personal information.

  • Check your recent activity on your account and report any suspicious or unauthorised actions.

  • Use a secure network and a trusted device when accessing your account online.

  • Use an antivirus software and a firewall to protect your devices from malware and hackers.
