Why it's important to use a unique password
Your email is the key to your online world; you can reset your password at most other sites you use if you have access to your email. When you reuse your Webmail password at other sites, you're making it much easier for attackers to potentially break into your account. Other sites often don't have the same high-security measures as Thexyz (such as compulsory HTTPS, locked-down servers, etc.), which makes them much easier for criminals to break into. If they hold your email address and the same password that you use for Thexyz, the attacker can then access your email account and get into everything else you use online.
Using two-step verification is an excellent way to keep your account safe, even if your password is compromised.
