People should focus on protecting their online accounts because their accounts have a lot of personal information. If this information is leaked, then it could land them in a huge trouble. The situation becomes more alarming when information related to email accounts are leaked on the web because email accounts are not just a platform for sending messages, but a lot of classified documents, messages and other important information is stored in email accounts. If all that information gets in hands of hackers, then one can only imagine how that information is going to be used against him/her.
Email accounts being hacked is a news that has become prevalent in the recent times. With so many email accounts being hacked, it surprises me as to why people don’t take some basic steps to enhance the security of their email accounts. It is not that difficult, plus by investing a few minutes on the security of email accounts, they can prevent a catastrophic event. If you are using RR email login account and are not satisfied with the current state of protection, then you can use the following tips to beef up the security of your email account.
There are certain security features that are activated by default, while others need to be activated manually. You can add a recovery email or a two-step security verification. A number of options are there for you, so it’s just that you need to find and enable the right options to fortify your email account.
Recovery email: This email can be used when someone tries to break into your email account and also gets successful. Today, email servers can easily determine as to which device and IP address the email is being operated on. So, if the email server finds out that you have not used your RR Com Login Mail on that particular device and IP, then it will send an email to your other email ID, and then, you can take the necessary action. You will be asked whether you have logged into your RR email account to which you can reply ‘NO’, and then, the server will initiate ‘logout’ process, and also ask to create a new password for the email account.
Creating a strong password: Creating a password that you can remember is not the right thing to do anymore. You need to choose a strong password consisting of a mix of small and capital letters, numbers, and at least one special character. Refrain from using your vehicle’s number plate, birthdate and other easy to guess passwords.
Wireless Security: You will find an option named ‘wireless security’ under which, you need to select ‘mixed WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK’. Make sure that you use the latest version of security so as to keep away all the hackers.
Don’t open spam emails: You must have received emails in which they say that you have won a specific amount in a lottery that you have never bought. So, don’t click on any image or link in that email, and throw it into the trash after marking it as ‘spam’.
Follow these small yet crucial steps and you will be able to safeguard your Roadrunner email account.
