Make sure you have two-factor authentication enabled everywhere.
Two-factor authentication requires a code sent to your mobile phone, in addition to your password. Here's a comprehensive list of websites that have two-factor, with links to how to turn it on for every site.
It's possible that backup codes for two-factor authentication enabled within the past few months were leaked, so disable and re-enable the feature if you've turned it on recently and generate new backup codes.
While you’re at it, add a PIN to your phone number account.
Hackers can bypass two-factor authentication by providing your name and last four digits of your social security number to your mobile carrier. It’s easy to add an extra layer of security to your phone number, and here’s how to do it.
