Nowadays, a significant portion of our personal and work activities are online, and we have many different online accounts, like Facebook, Gmail, Youtube, Nulab Account, etc.
But it’s troublesome to manage so many accounts, so people commonly reuse the same login information, like the username/email and password.
This is dangerous, because of password list attacks where attackers can obtain lists of account login usernames/passwords from elsewhere and try them to log into your account.
How to avoid password list attacks or unauthorized access?
1. Set up two-factor authentication (2FA)
Two-factor authentication provides an additional step of authentication with a mobile device or biometric device, besides your password when you’re logging in to your Nulab Account.
This helps prevent unauthorized logins, even if your password becomes known to a third party. See our guide on how to set up two-factor authentication.
2. Use unique passwords / Avoid reusing passwords
Use unique passwords for your accounts, with a mix of upper- and lower-case letters, numbers and symbols. To help you generate good and unique passwords, you can use a password manager like LastPass or internet browsers like Chrome can also help you generate passwords.
To change your current Nulab Account password, see our guide on managing your password.
3. Enable login alerts
Enabling login alerts ensures that you will receive an email notification when your Nulab account is logged into with a new browser or device. This allows you to be alerted to any unauthorized logins.
See our guide on turning login alerts on/off.
