Make sure your account is not getting forwarded or shared unless you want it to be that grant others access to your account. Regularly review your account for unfamiliar or suspicious activity. If you see suspicious account activity, unauthorized use of your password or Notarybd.com account immediately change your password and log out of your account. If you forget your password, you need a way to get back into your account. Notarybd.com may send you an email at a recovery email address if you need to reset your password, so make sure that recovery email address is up-to-date and is an account you can access.

For example, Notarybd.com can use your registered mobile number to challenge people if they try to break into your account, and send you a verification code, so you can get into your account if you ever lose access. Your mobile phone is a more secure identification method than your recovery email address or a security question.  Because unlike the other two, you have physical possession of your mobile phone.
