Tips for security on Wikipedia
  1. Wikipedia is a public space, do not disclose information that you do not want re-posted publicly elsewhere, can never be deleted and could be analysed and used by future employers, friends, criminals and commercial spammers.
  2. Use a strong unique password that is not connected to your real-life. Wikipedia can take long passwords (my longest has been 50 characters) so consider phrases you find memorable (but few others would) rather than just short keywords.
  • If you link to an email account, make sure your email account also uses a strong password.
  • If your browser remembers passwords for you, make sure you have a strong master password.
  • If you use a public connection try using the secure server and consider creating an alternate account (see WP:SOCKS#LEGIT).
  • For more information and tips see Privacy.
