How To Make Your Gmail Account More Secure?
Google take Gmail account security very seriously. To protect your Google email account, Google strongly recommend following the steps below regularly, especially if you notice some changes to your Gmail account that you didn’t make or not aware about the changes.
If you find any suspicious activity on your Gmail account, follow the important steps to help secure your Gmail account.
To help make your Gmail Account more safe and secure, you should follow these steps.
Step 1: Check for viruses and malware attack.
You should run a scan on your pc with a trusted “anti-virus” software. If the computer scan detects any doubtful programs or applications, delete them ASAP.
Step 2: Do a Gmail account Security Checkup
Go to the My Gmail Account page. In the “Gmail Security Checkup” tab, click to select Get Started and follow the on-screen instructions to check your Gmail account security.
You should check that your Gmail account recovery options are up-to-date.
Step 4: Enroll in 2-step verification
Use “2-Step Verification” that adds an extra layer of security to your Gmail account. The process requires you to log in with something you know (your Gmail account password) and something you have (a code sent to your mobile phone).
Step 5: Perform regular checkup for operating system and browser updates
Make sure you’ve set your computer to update automatically. If you get a notification to update, take care of update right away.
Step 6: Never use your Gmail Account password on another website
If you enter your Google email account password in an external website and it’s compromised, someone could try to log in to your Google email Account with the same information. Make sure to change Gmail password.
Step 7: Protect your Gmail account password
Never enter your Gmail account password after following a link in an email from an untrusted web site.
Don’t write it down anywhere, don’t send it via email, or don’t tell anyone. Google will never send any email you to ask for your Gmail password or any kind of other sensitive information.
