Wait, don't tell me.. you're using the same password, right?
With so many online accounts, it's much less hassle to re-use the same password, but by doing this, you are putting yourself at risk. No matter their size, all organisations are at risk of cyber attack, so if you've shared your email address and a password with them, they are at risk of exposure. Should they be compromised, hackers will try the same username and password combination with common email, shopping and payment services.
