12 Steps to Keep from Getting Your Account Hacked

My account has been hacked into several times. If I’m able to recover it, it just gets hacked again. Sometimes I can’t recover it, and I have to start all over with a new account. What can I do to stop this all from happening?

I’ll show you how to change it.
