Hackers love to gain access to individuals’ email accounts and then use those accounts to send out spam. Although there is no way to guarantee your email account is safe from hackers, there are some steps you can take to help secure your email.
Use a secondary email address when filling out forms online from companies that you don’t 100% trust. Some companies may sell your email address as part of a mail-list and it can end-up in the hands of hackers and spammers.
- Make sure your email password is complex. A simple password, like the name of your dog, may be easy to remember, but it is also easy for a hacker to figure out. A complex password with a combination of upper and lower case characters, numbers and special characters (such as an underscore or an ampersand) is much more difficult for a hacker to crack.
- Neither 360 Communications, LLC nor any other legitimate company will ever ask you for your email password via email. If you receive an email asking for your email password, even if the email claims to be from 360 Communications, LLC, delete the email without responding or call our office.
If you need help making your password more secure, one of our representative would be more than happy to assist you.
