4. Use strong password
Mobile number, girl/boy friends name, family members name, pet names are the most common things that the people used to keep for their accounts. Instead of keeping such week passwords, it’s better to use some strong password so that no one should even guess your password. Always make sure that your password should be combination of letter and numbers. So that it will be difficult for others to guess it.
5. Use different password for facebook and email account.
