Getting your email hacked is one of the worst things that could happen online, so to avoid this, you should protect it by securing your information.

Here are few tips I learned from Heather Green who shares ways to secure you email account:

  • Choose a strong password. You should use phrase and not just a word, and include lower, upper case, numbers, and special characters.
  • Change passwords frequently. As much as possible, change it every three months because you never know when a hacker will attack.
  • Choose strong security measures. Use strong security questions for which only you know the answer. Also include a secure backup email in case you forget the password.
  • Use the two-step verification. If you’re using Gmail, it has a security called two-step verification wherein when you sign up, you must enter the code Google sends you via text or voice message. This ensures that any accounts set up in your name are actually owned by you.

    Thanks for the article. We all need to be more proactive about our personal account security. One thing I am glad you mentioned is taking advantage of the 2FA (2-Factor Authentication). Although it’s been around for a while, more and more sites are starting to offer and promote this option. 2-Factor Authentication for banking wins every day. I feel suspicious when I am not asked to telesign into my account by way of 2FA, it just feels as if they are not offering my sites enough protection. I know some will claim this make things more complicated, but the slight inconvenience each time you log in is worth the confidence of knowing your info is secure. This should be a prerequisite to any system that wants to promote itself as being secure.
