1- Use different passwords for each site !

If you use the same password for multiple web sites, then the probability of that password being compromised increases dramatically.  Furthermore, if it is compromised, the attacker then has automatic access to all of the places that you use that password.

Make sure that the password used for access to your email is different from all of your other passwords.

2- Use strong passwords

Strong passwords are hard to guess.  These days, it is easy for a computer to try millions or 100s of millions of possible passwords in a very short time.  So, if your password is based on a word in the dictionary with a few permutations, such as “Appl3″ … that could be easily discovered.

Instead, pick complicated passwords that doesn't include your company name, the password should be at least 12 characters and can be comprised of multiple words and numbers or symbols. You can use this site to create complicated passwords http://passwordsgenerator.net/
