Security best practices

There are several things you can do to increase the security of your account on Ethos, including:

Use unique passwords

One of the most important things you can do is use a unique password for your Ethos account. If you've ever used the same password for more than one website, you should create new and unique passwords for each site (or use a tool such as 1Password or LastPass to help you manage passwords across multiple services)

Create strong passwords

Your password should be difficult for others to guess -- try using a combination of uppercase, lowercase, symbols, and numbers

Rotate your password

Change your password at least every few months

Never share your password

Never share passwords. Ethos Support will never ask for your account password, two-factor codes, or credentials for your banking institutions

Use two-factor authentication

Enable two-factor authentication in the Security settings of your account. Two-factor authentication requires anyone attempting to log into your account to have access to your phone, which provides you with additional protection from individuals attempting to access your account remotely

Monitor your account activity

Pay attention to your Ethos account and any activity you don't recognize (for example, changes to your personal details). See an email notifying you of a login or account update you don't recognize? Alert us as soon as you see something and we'll work with you to make sure your account is still secure
