Here's what we found for "Keeping your account safe"

Here are some things you can do to help prevent others from accessing your personal information:

  • Choose a unique password that's difficult to guess, comprised of random letters and numbers
  • Never share your personal information, such as your eBay account username and password, or your bank account details
  • Keep your computer's anti-virus, anti-spam, and other security software up to date
  • If you receive a suspicious email, don't select any links or reply with any personal information
  • Change your password regularly—we recommend every 30 to 60 days

If you think you've been the victim of identity theft, report it to the police.

To report a suspicious email, forward it to spoof@ebay.com.
