Having their accounts compromised or hacked can affect their reputation and have a negative impact on their credibility, as well as lead to a considerable loss of trust on behalf of their audience.

The list includes LastPass, a free service for storing and managing encrypted passwords; LopDog, which sends users a notification whenever suspicious activity is detected on one of their accounts, and AVG PrivacyFix, a free app for adding extra privacy settings on Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Twitter, and blocking unwanted tracking.
