If you're receiving a message on your phone or computer saying that your password was detected in a data leak, you should change your ChurchTrac password immediately. We'll show you how to change it, how often you should change it, and give you a couple of resources to help you keep track of passwords.
To change your password, go to SETTINGS and navigate to the USER ACCOUNTS tab. From there, you can click the "Change Password" button to begin changing your password.
We recommend changing your password at least once a year. At anytime you suspect that your password has been compromised, you should change your password immediately.
Most of us these days have to use passwords for almost everything online. Whether it's banking, social media, email, and even ChurchTrac! One of the worst things we can do is use the same password for all of those services. Why? Because if one of them gets hacked, the hackers can use that password to access any service that you may are using that has that same password. This is why we recommend using a Password Manager to store all of your passwords.
A password manager is a tool that allows you to create a unique password for every service you use. It stores all those passwords for you so that you don't have to remember every single password for every service. Instead, you just remember your unique password for the password manager.
If you are a Mac user, we would recommend using Apple's built-in password manager called Keychain Access. Not only does it store all of your passwords, but it can generate unique passwords for you automatically that include numbers, characters, and unique symbols. If you are on a PC, we would recommend using Google Passwords or opting for a paid tool such as Last Pass. We do not recommend using free password managers outside of Apple or Google.
