How to protect your account online

At Devex, we help development professionals connect, collaborate, and make a difference. To ensure your online security, we recommend these steps to further protect your account:


Create a strong password

  • Pick a strong, unique password with letters, numbers, and symbols.
  • Use a password with at least 12 characters for stronger security.
  • Use a trusted password manager.
  • Avoid easy-to-guess passwords, dates, or common phrases.
  • Change your password regularly.
  • Never share passwords to anyone.
  • Remember to sign out on shared/public devices.


Be vigilant of phishing attempts

Exercise caution with any unexpected emails, messages, or links asking for personal information. Confirm the authenticity of communications and share information only through official Devex channels. See this article for more tips and reminders.


Keep your software updated 

Keep your software up to date, including your operating system, antivirus, software, apps, and browser extensions. Regular updates protect against known vulnerabilities.


Use secure networks

Connect to secure networks whenever possible. Consider using a VPN for added security when using public Wi-Fi or switching to your mobile data instead.
