17. Changing Your Password and Other Security Settings

FileThis is inherently secure—your documents are safe and protected at all times. But if an identity thief acquires your login and password information, he or she will have the same access that you do. Be sure to keep your account information private and use a unique password. (For details on creating a strong password, click here.) FileThis lets you change your password and other security settings any time.
