If there is a security loopholes in the service providers (Company) infrastructure then this is a calling to the hackers and if user have the simple and same password of several accounts then also its the same.

Here some internet security tips by which users can make their online accounts security strong and secure.
1. Use of Complex password - User should choose complex password, mean use alpha-numeric words and have atleast 1 special character on the password. User are advised to have the case sensitive letters on password they choose.

This  makes an attacker to easily guess your password. Many times users use password as a dictionary word, this also won't make it secure. There are many free tools available over internet by which attacker can perform a dictionary attack.

3. Use Two-Factor Authentication - Now there are many service that have added Two-Factor Authentication, so users are recommend to enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) with their online
accounts.
Two Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA, two step verification or TFA, is an extra layer of security that is known as "multi factor authentication" that requires not only a username and password but also a One-Time Passcode (OTP) that is sent to your mobile number.

4. Avoid Common passwords - Many time users uses same password for almost all of there account, but this is a bad security practice. We recommend users not to use same password for their accounts. We know that remembering too many password of each account is not easy, but users can make some changes to their passwords as like change of the case sensitive, using different special characters on to it. User can also make some changes on their password and make it long and more complex.

5. Update your password - Many of the times users didn't change their password from a long run.

Many of time attackers hijack your accounts and didn't change the password as like you. Hence you didn't notice about the hijack and continues using the service, as while attacker also have the access to your account. This is just because you didn't update your password.
