Yesterday I was going through a research report by Commtouch on Spammers hacking email accounts to send spam mails that would otherwise not reach a user. According to report out of all compromised email accounts, Gmail accounts were the third most vulnerable at 19%.
Another alarming fact brought up in research was that 62 % of people didn’t have any idea how their account was compromised.
With the amount of data exchanged through emails at all time high, email security is something we can’t neglect any longer.
We would be covering in detail all the possible ways of securing your Gmail account. In the first article of this series we will be discussing how to change your Gmail password.
While you should change your Gmail account password on slightest hint of your account being compromised we recommend that you make it a rule to change it every couple of months.
