Why It Is Important to Protect Email Accounts

 

Usually, our email address is the cornerstone of all our web activity. Your personal email is as important as your password so you just can’t lose it. Our life is closely related to dozens of web services and all authorization credentials require your email address.

Considering we link everything from online shopping to federal taxes with our emails, recovery from a hack can be time-consuming.
