Protect your account

Our security team works tirelessly to safeguard your account and your personal information, but there are also measures you should take to further protect your WordExcerpt account.

Use a secure password

To keep your account as secure as possible, we recommend you:

  • Use a long password with letters, capitals, numbers, and special characters.

  • Use a different password for each online service you use.

  • Change your password frequently.

  • Never share your password with anyone.

Device security

Keep your deviceโ€™s firmware, operating system, and/or anti-virus software up-to-date for general online security.

Check out your deviceโ€™s support site for help with this.

Remove access to 3rd party apps

If someone gains unauthorized access to your account, we recommend removing any 3rd party apps with access to your WordExcerpt as they may have become compromised. You can grant access to them again if you want.

Log out after using WordExcerpt on public devices

Whether youโ€™re at work, school, the library, or using a device that isnโ€™t your own, remember to log out after using WordExcerpt to prevent others from gaining access to your account.
