1) Use at least 13 Character Passwords, (i.e. a memorable phrase or sentence)

2) Enable 2-Step Verification on your Google account as this provides much better security as there's rarely a chance that another person has your password AND your cell phone at the same time

3) Use upper case, lower case, symbols and numbers in your passwords (i.e. phrase or sentence)

4) Never reuse the same passwords - i.e. if your bank account(s) are the same as your Google account and someone gets your Google password, Then they've also got your bank account passwords and possibly others?! - This is especially important, say if a malicious hacker gets just one of your passwords, but then tries that same password automatically on 10,000s different websites (via a 'bot'/program) and finds which websites you've all used that same password - and now he's got your email password AND all your financial accounts/passwords?
