With the focus on web security today it’s not uncommon to have a password for every site that you visit. From online banking to eBay you may have dozens of passwords! Sometimes it can be difficult to remember which password you used for each service. Protection 1 values your privacy and your security! Our very existence depends on it and for that reason we ask for a password every time you call.
We Ask Because We Care About Your Security!
It may not seem like a big deal to ask for us to change your telephone number without a password. However, a burglar could be calling in to change the number so that it you are never notified, buying them the extra time to rob the house before the police arrive. For that reason, every time you call Protection 1, even if it seems like a minor issue… we require you to give us your password.
Make sure that you commit your Protection 1 password to memory and be sure to use something that would be easy for you to remember but hard for others to guess. Even though it is tempting, we don’t recommend using the same password that you use elsewhere, like on your online banking or other Internet sites. If a hacker does discover your password, they often try the same password for other accounts. The last thing you want to do is put your home at risk because a Website didn’t keep your password safe.
If you ever have any concerns that someone you don’t trust has your password… call us right away at 877-PRO-1911 to have it changed.
