et's see… here is my top 10 list. I can obtain most of this information much easier than you think, then I might just be able to get into your e-mail, computer, or online banking. After all, if I get into one I'll probably get into all of them.

  1. Your partner, child, or pet's name, possibly followed by a 0 or 1 (because they're always making you use a number, aren't they?)
  2. The last 4 digits of your social security number.
  3. 123 or 1234 or 123456.
  4. "password"
  5. Your city, or college, football team name.
  6. Date of birth – yours, your partner's or your child's.
  7. "god"
  8. "letmein"
  9. "money"
  10. "love"

Weak passwords make an email account easier to hack. There are other reasons too that make an email ID vulnerable to hacking. To protect yourself from the bad guys looking to breach your privacy you must take preventive measures.

What are the 5 Ways to Avoid Email ID Hacking?

  • Strong Password:

               Creating a strong password for your email account is essential. Strong password is a combination of alpha-numeric and special characters. Type some characters in UPPER case and others in the Lower case. It gives you assurance that your password is hard to guess. Even though people around you may watch you while typing your password at a public place, they may not easily remember your password keys.
    An Example:
    ltRom@sysFB (Let It Rain Over Me) (Facebook)
  • Change Password Recovery Information:

               When you click “I forgot my password” link, you’re redirected to Recovery Options page where you have to answer simple questions such as your birth date, birth place and so on. Then you enter new page where you have to enter alternative email id or your mobile which you have had entered while making the account so that you can receive a link to reset your password or get a code to verify your identity.

               To avoid email ID hacking, you have to be very careful with this kind of recovery information. Go to Settings, type answer of your recovery question. Also provide alternative email id and mobile number.
  • Stay Away from Key-Loggers:

               Key loggers are nothing but malicious programs that record your keystroke and screen contents. They usually run in background- without your knowledge and record each keystroke you press, your mouse clicks and screenshots as well. These these malicious tool send this information to the “bad guys” who analyze the information, extract and abuse your confidential information such as user name, password, bank details, etc.
  • Don’t Log-In on an Open Wi-Fi Connection:

               Wi-Fi internet users should be aware about the risks associated with open Wi-Fi connections. Anyone within range (usually a few hundred feet) could have access to your network conversation and perhaps hack your email id. Hence make sure to keep WPA encryption enabled.
  • Avoid Logging-In from Public Computers:

               One more thing to keep in mind NEVER set a single password to multiple email accounts. If the hacker got access to any of your email account then he can hack other accounts too. Change your passwords usually after a month.
