3. Use Password Manager
Since it can be a challenge to remember dozens of different credentials, password managers come in handy. They allow you to store all log-in data in an encrypted database. You secure it with a password that is as complex as possible and then only need to remember one password to secure all passwords.
4. Keep your software up to date
Not only online services, but also your local computer should be protected. It is very important to keep the software you are using up-to-date. The operating system, all browsers and also local mail programs should be updated automatically. Please also make sure that new softwares should only be installed from trustworthy sources, i.e. preferably from official App Stores of the operating system manufacturer or from the website of the manufacturer.

5. Watch out for phishing attempts
A phishing attack can often look like a mail from a known service, with flawless wording, which can even be an exact copy of a real mail in which only a single link has been replaced. More and more phishing mails are being set up with a personal greeting and a full name. For this reason, it can be difficult to recognize such an e-mail immediately. Therefore, be careful and pay attention to logo, graphic design, grammatical language and greeting. If you find any suspicious information or hint, it is recommended to have a closer look at it and to contact the respective service.
A clear hint can be a link leading to an external website, aiming to trick the user into revealing important data. Special care should be taken here if the link leads to an astonishingly well-constructed page that does not differ significantly from the original at first glance (logo, structure, etc.) and payment data is requested or needs to be verified again.

6. Info to the respective service
If you suspect unusual account activity or phishing attempts, contact the relevant service or support to see if these suspicious activities can be confirmed.
