When divorcing, people should consider setting up a new email address or, at the very least, changing their password. This particularly applies to communications with their lawyer, therapist, or new partner and avoid using a new password that their other half may be able to guess
They should change the password on bank accounts and social media and consider who to block on social media accounts.
Changing the pin of their phone, switching off ‘Find my Phone’ and stopping sharing calendars are also recommended. Before you decide who gets to keep your shared devices, back up what you want and then factory reset.
Finally, they should log out of sites where they would normally remain logged in and untick ‘remember my password’ options.
