Attorney General DeWine Offers Consumer Tips Following eBay Breach
Attorney General DeWine offered consumers the following tips:
- If you are an eBay user, change your password. If you have used the same password for other accounts, consider changing those passwords as well.
- Choose a different password for each of your online accounts.
- Create passwords that are long and complex, using a variety of numbers, letters, and characters. Rather than choosing a word, consider picking a familiar phrase and using the first letter of each word, followed by a random number. For example, you could use the phrase “My dog’s name is Brutus!” and choose the password, “MdniB!579.”
- Change your passwords often.
- Don’t store passwords or account username reminders on smartphones or computers. This personal information could be compromised by a computer virus.
- Beware of possible scams related to the breach. For example, watch out for email or text messages that instruct you to click on a link to “change your password.” Some scammers may use the breach as ploy to get you to click on malicious links.
