By using a strong password, do not re-use the same password on any other site and not share your password with others. We recommend that you use a password manager like LastPass to create and store your password.
 If you are not using security practices and your account is compromised, we will not be able to help you.

What this guy said. Lookup LastPass and KeePass, they're the two best password managers as of now. I personally use LastPass because it's way more convenient than the latter. Also, change your passwords like in a minimum of once a month for better safety measure.

One last thing, go to https://haveibeenpwned.com/ and lookup your emails. It can show you which if your emails on whatever website has been compromised in the past.

What Account? Just general accounts? Strong passwords + 2FA.

You talking about your Bitcoins? Hardware wallet.

Can you be more specific what account is this? But generally, keeping your password as your the only one knows it, don't share it to anyone, and make sure that you secured your devices you used so you can stay away from malware that can steal some private information

KeePass2 allows you to set some periods of time to change your passwords, its a really handy feature to improve security. Also set up a good firewall and encrypting your private keys helps alot.

I'm not sure which account you are referring to....

Strong password. A long combination of numbers, characters, uppercase and lowercase letters.
Two factor authentication if possible

Maybe by signing your permanent wallet address that your confirming your the really owner of the account and your the one who is the only one who using that bitcoin address coz wether you got email on your account or have a strong password you wouldn't know the safety of each websites.

Marcuslong is on the right track if I read this thread correctly.

I am pretty sure the OP is talking about his bitcointalk account here?  To observe the process just click on my signature and see how easy it is to do!

You must use a strong password which contains letters,numbers and specials caracters.
Also you have to use E mail and phone verification because it helps in the case of losing your account, it is easy to recover it.

Long password with capital letter, small letter, numbers and symbols. Also be aware of Trojans (keylogger), try not to install unknown software from unknown source.

And enable 2FA whenever you can (not possible for this forum though, it's a pity).
Also keep your computer clean, if you really want to visit some site, use protection  Grin

Also, if you are trying to protect a Bitcoin account, I strongly recommend a hardware wallet such as the Ledger Nano S or the Trezor. This will help protect your bitcoins even if your PC somehow gets infected. However, you should definitely take the steps mentioned above to help prevent that from occurring by being careful what you download and not running shady programs, etc.

Keep your email not to be known, email publication is strictly prohibited in this forum, because if the email is hacked then our security is in danger, essentially do not let your email in the know

Simply, if you are talking about this account use strong password, containing numbers and characters, keep email as hidden from public.
If it is bitcoin account, use a hardware wallet to protect your bitcoin.
