➤ Tips on how to protect your privacy on Eyewitness
Think carefully before you post personal information. This includes things like the town you live in, where you go to school, or your home address. Protect your account data and don’t share your password with others. Create a unique, strong password for your Eyewitness Account (and don’t use the same login and password for other sites). Here are some tips to help you create a strong password:
Your password should be at least eight characters in length, combine numbers and letters, and not include commonly used words.
Select a word or acronym and insert numbers between some of the letters.
Include punctuation marks.
Mix capital and lowercase letters.
Don't reuse passwords associated with any other type of account.
Phishing is the process of tricking someone into giving up their personal information such as credit card numbers, social security/national ID numbers, or other financial data. Usually when they have that information, they'll then use it to steal your money, property or identity.
Remember, Eyewitness will never ask you for your password, email address, or other account information. Don't be fooled if someone contacts you pretending to be from Eyewitness.
