We use the same industry-leading security measures that companies like Amazon and Google do to keep your data safe. Even so, there are some simple steps you can take to help us protect your Mudflap account. It all starts with good password practices.

When to Reset Your Password

Cybersecurity experts suggest changing your password every 60 days—which we know can feel a bit overwhelming. At the very least, we recommend changing your password at least every six months.

However, if you think someone might have gotten hold of your login details for any reason, or if something unusual appears in your account, you should change your password right away.

5 Tips to Create a Strong Password

  1. Don’t use personal information. you should avoid information that could be accessed on social media (like birthdays, anniversaries, or your spouse’s name)
  2. Use a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. You can use numbers to replace letters in words or add them throughout your password to make it harder to guess
  3. Never recycle passwords. If another company has a data breach, passwords are often sold on the dark web which makes recycled passwords easy to find and use
  4. Consider using a passphrase. A passphrase is more secure because they are longer but can actually be easier for you to remember. For example, Highways123! is not as secure as HighwayLifeIsforMe123!
  5. Utilize a password manager. Don’t write your passwords down for safekeeping, use a password manager instead. Companies like 1Pass, Dashlane, and LastPass have apps to help you safely store your passwords while you’re on the road.

Keep Your Information Up-to-Date

If you can’t remember your login details and need to reset your password using the “I forgot my password” option, we need to verify that it’s you resetting it. To do this, we’ll use the phone number and/or email address that you’ve provided, so keeping this information up-to-date is essential.
