Many browsers, such as Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Firefox, offer to save passwords for future use. These passwords are saved in the current user data for the browser, which is easily found and stolen leaving your account and personal information vulnerable.
Saving passwords may seem like a great time-saver especially if you frequently forget your passwords, but your password is not as safe as you would like it to be.
The best way to protect your password, and thus your account, is to NEVER save your password in a browser especially on a shared computer or campus computer, or a laptop.
Also, remember to change your password often. Make sure passwords consist of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters (! # $ % @).
