Protect your email account now

I imagine that you have access to many online services such as bank accounts, TV subscriptions, and social networks, just to name a few.

One of the major cybersecurity problems are people, or robots, who try to impersonate others.

There are many ways to do this. If you have any questions, search  for password cracker.

Security companies even have an estimate of the time, based on the strength of the password you are using, of how much time is required. See the info:


What do all of your online service accounts have in common? Most likely, you used your email account to sign up for these services.

If you happen to want to change the password for any of these services, you inform the responsible company and they will probably send, via email, a link for you to register a new password.

And if someone happens to get your email password?

Well, in this case the malicious agent could easily access all of the services that you have contracted. And your headache will be huge.

To protect your email, or any other service, you should set up, if you haven't already, two-factor authentication.

Each platform has a way of doing this but as a rule, 2FA (two-factor authentication) is based on one thing that you know and one thing that you have. What you know is the password. And what you have is your cell phone. When you enable 2FA, you will either receive a code via SMS or use an authentication app that generates a code for you. This code will be used to complete your login.

I understand that it is more work, but security is inversely proportional to your comfort as a user.
