Protecting your online access
As a security measure, upon login and password resets we will automatically check the strength and security of your password against databases of common and known breached passwords. If the password you entered appears in the list of unsecure passwords, we will not allow you to login until you update to a secure password.
How can my login details be compromised?
Every year, billions of login details from hundreds of websites are stolen by criminals in cyber attacks. These stolen email addresses and passwords are then exposed on internet forums or sold on dark web marketplaces, where cyber criminals pay to gain access to your sensitive data and online accounts.
Cyber criminals are using techniques such as credential stuffing, where the same login credentials that have appeared in a data breach have been used by a person across multiple sites such as social media, email accounts, banking, local pizza shop, and password spraying, where common passwords and passwords from previous data breaches are used to gain access. Always use a strong unique password for each online site you visit.
In addition to securing your Sunsuper online account, you should ensure your personal email account is appropriately secured with a long unique strong password. If cyber criminals get access to your email account, they could potentially impersonate you and compromise your other online accounts.
