# Protect Your IDX Account: Tips for Secure Account Creation

As you create your IDX account, we want to ensure that it is secure and protected from potential threats. Follow these tips to ensure the security of your account:

## Create a Strong Password

Creating a strong password is the first step towards securing your account. Here’s how you can create a strong password:

– Make it lengthy – A strong password should be at least 12 characters long.
– Include numbers, symbols, and uppercase and lowercase letters.
– Avoid using personal information like your name, date of birth, or address.
– Create unique passwords for every account.

## Authenticate Your IDX Account

Two-factor authentication can add an extra layer of security to your account. Here’s how you can enable it:

– Turn on two-factor authentication by going to your account settings.
– Choose to receive a text message or use an authenticator app to verify your identity.
– You will need to enter a verification code every time you log in, making it harder for someone to gain access to your account.

## Use a Secure Internet Connection

When creating your IDX account, it’s important to use a secure internet connection. Here’s what you can do:

– Use a trusted and secure device.
– Avoid using public Wi-Fi networks as they are often less secure.
– Use a virtual private network (VPN) to encrypt your internet connection.

## Keep Your IDX Account Information Private

Keeping your account information private is crucial. Here are some things to keep in mind:

– Don’t share your account login information with anyone.
– Be wary of phishing scams that can steal your login information.
– Use a safe and secure password manager to store your password information.

## Monitor Your Account for Suspicious Activity

Monitoring your account for any suspicious activity can help you protect your account. Here’s how you can do it:

– Review your account activity regularly to ensure that there are no unknown logins or actions.
– Enable account notifications, so you receive alerts for any suspicious activity.
– If you notice any suspicious activity, immediately change your password, log out of all devices, and contact IDX support.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your IDX account is secure and protected. Happy account creation!
