#Choose a secure password.  For a password to be considered secure, it should consist of letters (capital and lowercase), numbers, and/or symbols, and it should not be a common phrase. A password such as "John&Doe15" is more secure than "john" or "doe".
#*Store the second half of your password in a different place, such as behind a photo.[[Image:Protect Your wikiHow Account Step 1Bullet2.jpg|center]]

#* If in doubt as to whether your password is secure or not, check [https://haveibeenpwned.com/ Have I Been Pwned] for password breach reports and Wikipedia's [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:10,000_most_common_passwords list of most common passwords].

#Next time you log in, remember to not check the box that says "Remember Me." Checking that box keeps you logged in '''every time''' you visit wikiHow, even if you're not coming to edit. That means every time family member visits wikiHow, even if they are directed to wikiHow from Google, it will show up that you're logged in and they can access your talk page, profile, and other personal pages that you want to be left alone.[[Image:Screenshot 2018 09 13 at 3.44.02 PM.png|center]]
