At ClearScore, keeping your data safe is our top priority, and we want to encourage our users to stay safe online.
As your ClearScore report contains very sensitive financial information, it's really important to choose a secure password.
Here are some useful tips for making a good password:
- Make complex passwords: use uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and special characters. Do not use words, but substitute letters for numbers or special characters for e.g. IL0V3MyCl3aRsC0Re2o17
- Create long passwords: the longer your password, the more secure it is.
- Use a unique password: avoid using the same password for all your accounts, use a password that is unique to your ClearScore account.
- Change your password regularly: changing your passwords on a regular basis is a good habit to get into and a good way to keep your account safe.
You could also consider using a password manager - these applications can save and generate secure passwords for you so you only have to remember one password.
