Email Security Settings

It is important to set your security settings and security questions within your email account. If you forget your password, enter the wrong password too many times, get blocked, or your email account gets hacked then you will need to be able to get back into it. 

But one can get back in by setting the security settings. This includes creating or using a second email account, and verifying that account with your main email account. Once the second email account has been verified, then the first email account can safely send a password to the second account.

But it isn't just a question of creating and verifying a second email account. One also has to set some simple questions that only you would know the answer to. The usual questions are things like; who was your first pet, what's your mothers maiden name, etc.

And please don't forget to write the details down in the same place that you have recorded your account user names and passwords.


Set your email security so that you can get in easily if you forget your password, or get hacked
