A very important and useful form of communication for personal, business and leisure aside from social Medias is email. Having an email address means that you are able to connect to different websites, subscribe, purchase, send your requests, and a lot more. In fact, everyone who is using the Internet must have at least one email address to maintain.
For instance, you want to join a specific online forum. Before you can even join, you are required or asked for your email address. Otherwise, you will not be able to sign in.
Because email addresses are in demand and mandatory when using the Internet, you need to be very careful and vigilant. Therefore, you need to know the “what should” and “should not” when signing and using your email addresses.
First of all, you need to secure your safety. Since you are asked for your personal details when you sign up for any email websites, you need to secure your details and to do that, you have to be extra careful in signing in your email addresses.
First tip is to at least sign in using your own gadgets. For instance, if you have your mobile phones, tablets or laptops, it is advisable that these are the only gadgets you are ever going to sign in with your email address. This way, the chances of your email address being hacked is minimal. The risk of signing in to different gadgets is very high and prone to hacking since you don’t know the server of the gadget you are using and worse, it might already contain worms and viruses that can hack anything.
Also, using other gadgets or devices is also dangerous because you might be able to forget to sign out and if another user will use the same device, that person can immediately access all your files. You need to remember that your email address is also similar to your personal diary. Every private and confidential detail about yourself and your accounts are dependent to your email.
Aside from gadget limitation, you also need to have additional security feature for your email. There are already email providers that offer and recommends additional security feature before you are able to sign in to your account. Example of which is when you are asked additional personal question before you are lead to the main page of your email. This is very important to avail, though.
