Password Security

Password Security

Irish customers on Living Social have been urged by the Data Protection Commissioner to change their password after hackers gained unauthorised access to databases containing customer details.

Living Social has stressed that the database containing credit card details had not been compromised.

Tips for Online Password Security

  • Create a strong password, use letters, numbers and a symbol if possible. Never use spouses, children or pets names.
  • Use different passwords for different accounts. If an account is hacked, your other accounts will not be at risk.
  • Use the Security Question option sparingly, if there is an option to verify with phone or email always select it. Many people close to you will know most security questions.
