How To Protect Your Email from Hacking ?


There are a few important steps that you can take in order to increase the security of your email communication. The first is to make sure that only the person to whom you send a given message is able to read it. This is discussed in the Keeping your webmail private and Switching to a more secure emailaccount sections, below. Going beyond the basics, it is sometimes critical that your email contacts have the ability to verify that a particular message truly came from you and not from someone who might be attempting to impersonate you. One way to accomplish this is described under Advanced email security, in the Encrypting and authenticating individual email messages section.

You should also know what to do if you think the privacy of your email account may have been violated. The Tips on responding to suspected email surveillance section addresses this question.

Remember, too, that secure email will not do you any good if everything you type is recorded by spyware and periodically sent over the Internet to a third party. Our guide How to protect your computer from malware and hackers offers some advice on how to prevent this sort of thing, and our guide How to create and maintain secure passwords will help you protect your accounts for the email and instant messaging tools described below.
