- Do not share your login information or password with anyone, including Apollo personnel. Giving anyone access to your accounts can put your information at risk. Apollo will never ask you for your login information or password except when allowing you to log in to an Apollo authorized site (if you forget your password or login ID, we will issue you new ones).
- Be creative with your password. You should use a highly secure password for all your financial accounts. The strongest passwords combine letters, numbers and special characters. The longer the password, the better. Never use the name of a family member, pet or any other information that someone could easily obtain, such as your birth date, phone number or address. Remember to change your password regularly as an added security measure. Avoid reusing the same password for multiple websites.
- Use an email provider that asks you to verify your identity in multiple steps. Sometimes this is referred to as multi-factor authentication, or two-factor authentication.
