1-   PASSWORD PROTECTION
  • Pick a unique password that you haven't previously used on other sites or on Gmail. Just changing one character or number still counts as reusing your password.
  • Don't use a dictionary word or a common word that's easily guessable. Use a combination of numbers, characters, and case-sensitive letters.


2-   RECOVERY OPTIONS
  • Recovery email address: We can use your recovery email address to communicate with you if you lose access to your account.
  • SMS: We can send you a recovery code to your mobile phone number, which you can use to reset your password.
  • Secret question: This option is only available if you can't use the above recovery options and only if haven't tried to sign in during the past 24 hours. An ideal answer to your security question is easy for you to remember, but hard for others to guess.


3-   USE SECURE CONNECTION
  • In your Gmail settings, select 'Always use HTTPS.' This setting protects your information from being stolen when you're signing in to Gmail on a public wireless network, like at a cafe or hotel.
USE SECURE 'https' LOGIN


4-   CONFIRM THE MAIL SETTINGS.
            Sign in to your account and click on the Settings link at the top to check the following tabs:
  • General: Check SignatureVacation Responder, and/or canned responses for spammy content
  • Accounts: Verify your settings under Send mail as, which includes checking your reply-to settings, Check mail using POP3, and Grant access to your account.
  • Filters: Check that no filters are sending your mail to TrashSpam, or forwarding to an unknown account.
  • Forwarding and POP/IMAP: Ensure your mail isn't sent to an unknown account or mail client.



5-   MONITOR YOUR GMAIL ACTIVITY
  • Click the Details link next to the 'Last Account Activity' entry at the bottom of your account to see the time, date, IP address and the associated location of recent access to your account.



6-   DO NOT CLICK ON SUSPICIOUS LINKS



7-   USE AN GOOD, UPDATED & ORIGINAL ANTIVIRUS
  • An Antivirus provides security from HACKERS, KEYLOGGERS, MALICIOUS WEBSITES etc.
