Causes

  • Weak or easily guessable passwords
  • Phishing scams that trick users into giving away login details 
  • Malware or viruses on the user's device that steal login credentials
  • Using the same password for multiple accounts leaves them all vulnerable if one is compromised

  2. Then, enter your Xfinity username or email address associated with the account.
