Why you should secure your email address Part 2March 22, 2019
We continue sharing smart suggestions from our spamsters regarding email security:
be smart with password – previous case leads us to the next one. Upper and lower case, numbers, signs, digits – be creative as much as possible (with 8 characters at least 😉 )
change your password regularly and keep different – it is a second part of the previous suggestion. P.S. Keep different does not mean to change password from PasS8Wor#d1 to PasS8Wor#d2. Remember, be creative!
create a testing email address using free email providers – probably not the best decision in terms to those email providers but it is legal anyway. Using testing email address allows you to check the services that look suspicious to you. You can always change the email address to the other one once you are confident that it is secured to use.
two factor authentication – if your email provider supports it – use it! This also applies to third party services using your email address. In this case you can create an app specific password.
avoid replying to unknown – let it stay in your blocked list. This is the best one, where you add your email address to the Spamdrain filtering and we do the rest 😎
Thank you for reading!
Have a great day and a secured mailbox!
