How to Keep Your Email Secure
Create a Strong Password
A strong password is the gatekeeper for email security. This is the first thing you need to get right if you want to protect your email.
Hackers are smart, and they have multiple ways to get into your email, such as phishing, dictionary attacks, and brute force attacks. The stronger the password you use, the harder it is for hackers to gain access to your account.
A strong password should have a minimum of 12 characters — the longer your password is, the less likely it is hackers can crack it. Use a mixture of uppercase and lowercase letters, random symbols, and characters. Don’t use easy-to-guess passwords or passwords that form a pattern, such as vertical or horizontal letters and numbers, your first name, pet’s name, or birth date.
