How do I know if my password was hacked?
We believe it’s best to be cautious. So, if you’ve registered your account with Trapster, then it’s best to assume that your e-mail address and password were included among the compromised data.
We therefore recommend changing the password on your account, and if you used that password on any other site, you should change your password on that site as well.
Should I be concerned about my other online accounts? What if I used that password on other sites?
If you used your Trapster password on any other web site you should change the password on that site as well, particularly if you used the same e-mail address with that site.
Additionally, it is generally suggested that password security increases if you follow these guidelines:
- At least 8 characters, and for added security, 14 or more
- Avoid common words and phrases
- Use both upper and lower case characters, and include numbers and symbols
- Do not base your password on any personal information
How do I change my password?
Log on at Trapster.com, and then go to My Account followed by Manage Account. Enter your new password and then click Update Account.
If you’d like to change your registered e-mail address, again go online and go to My Account, then Manage Account. Click on change e-mail and put your new e-mail in the space provided. Then click on Verify. Wait for a confirmation e-mail to that address to verify your new e-mail account.
