CHECK YOUR EMAIL

Unfortunately data breaches are all too common these days.
Check to see if your email has been compromised using the reputable HIBP checker

"Oh no, I've been hacked!
What now?"

First off - don't panic! Just follow the simple instructions below:

  1. Change the password on the affected email account - don't use anything obvious or a simple variation of your previous password. See below for an easy to remember password protocol.
  2. Change the password on all the compromised accounts - yes, this is tiresome but it's better to be safe than sorry.
  3. Adopt a protocol for passwords - decide how you will remember passwords for all the many accounts and websites that need them. You can use password management software like 1Password, LastPass or StickyPassword or just follow our simple easy-to-remember method below.

BUSINESS DOMAIN CHECK

If you have more than one email associated with your domain, you may need some help

Valet Websites can check your business domain for compromised emails - all your employees' emails for example, as well as generic email addresses like "help" and "info" @yourdomain.com. Our service costs £35 for up to 100 email addresses. A small price for peace of mind.

A Simple Password Protocol

Follow these simple steps and always have a unique and easy-to-remember password for any website

  1. CHOOSE A SHORT TWO WORD PHRASE  - this is something you will not forget - your partner's name (Jim Smith), your pet's name (Rover Dog) etc
  2. FIND THE WEBSITE NAME - for the website account you are protecting, take the first three or four letters of the website, and insert that into the password. So, if you were protectring your Google account, you could take the three letters "goo"
  3. INSERT THE LETTERS - the next bit is up to you but I think it is best to insert the three of four letters between the two words you chose. So if you decided to base your choice on your pet's name, this would produce rovergoodog.
  4. INSERT REQUIRED CHARACTERS - many websites require the use of upper case, numbers and special characters. How you do this is up to you, but an example would be to make the first letter upper case, replace the letter "o" with the numeral "0", and insert a special character like the $, £, @,! or ? symbols. In this case, the letter "d" could be replaced by the $ (dollar) symbol. Or you could add @ at the end. Whichever you choose, always do the same thing but making sure you always make a unique password for every website.
