Securing a Firestorm Account

By Ouroboros in Tutorials & Guides,
Use a Strong Password A strong password uses a mix of numbers, letters, and symbols. You can use a phrase made up of multiple words—it's easier for you to remember, and harder for others to guess. Most importantly, don't use this password for any other accounts.   Add an Authenticator Two-step verification (2FA) makes it extremely difficult for hackers to access your account. Go to your Authenticator Overview Page. Simply scan the QR Code or Download the application. Remember to download your recovery codes incase you lose your phone, etc.   Secure Your Computer Scan your computer for malware, keyloggers, and viruses. Keep your operating system up to date. Your computer is less secure if you're missing critical security updates.   Friends and Family Sharing experiences with your friends and family is great—sharing your account with them is not. All of the authenticators and passwords in the world aren't going to mean a lot if your friends or family members have immediate access to your computer. While you may trust them, they may inadvertently expose your account to greater risk. Use the following best practices to make sure you're the only one using the account—don't let someone else get it banned. Log out of your account or lock the computer every time you step away from the computer. Do not let your friends or family know your password or the location of your authenticator. if you're having problems with changing your e-mail address or adding the authenticator, just send me a private message.
