Also enable, where possible, multifactor authentication. Most sites use RFC 6238 time-based one-time passwords (TOTPs). There are many, many implementations for Android, iOS, and even HTML5 (uses the Web Storage API to store the keys in your browser). Even if your password is compromised, it won’t be useful unless the TOTP is also known.
