How to Secure Gmail and Other Web-Based Email Accounts

Maintaining the safety of your email account is critical. Not only does it likely contain important, private information, but it may be the key to other accounts – if “password reset” emails are intercepted by criminals, for example, they can hack into other accounts as well. So how should you protect your Gmail or other web-based email accounts?

Watch the video to find out how. 

Checklist -

a. Use HTTPS

b. Use a strong, original password

c. Enable and use multi-factor authentication

d. Check last login activity

e. Make sure your settings are correct – you do not want forwards to unintended ids, and want to make sure that recovery options are set to current email accounts and phone numbers.

f. Do not share your email address on public social media, and do not fall prey to phishing emails
