Hotmail, which was launched in 1996, continues to make advances in email security, but that doesn't mean it's impervious to hackers. Unwise email practices can leave you a target for e-criminals who want to use your email address to lure friends and family members into clicking on links for malware or entering personal information. By properly protecting your Hotmail address, you can ensure that your email address isn't a target for hackers. Everybody wants to be secure & private we are the technical department of hotmail support we will provide you here some important point to have secure your account.
Read these points carefully: -
- Your password acts as the protection between you and hackers who want to hijack your email for their own purposes. Too often, passwords are far too easy to guess based on your name, interests, location and other variables. Some common and easy-to-guess passwords include "12345,"password" and even "qwerty." Simple passwords mean it's easy for hackers to guess and gain access to your Hotmail account. Instead, choose a password that is a combination of letters, numbers and symbols that cannot be directly traced to your name or location. Then, make a habit of changing your password each month to avoid hacking.
- When you post your email address irresponsibly around the Internet, hackers find your address and then can set to work trying to guess your email and hack into your account. By creating a junk mail account with Hotmail, you can keep your personal Hotmail address private. That way, when posting your email address in public forums or on website registrations, you can use your junk mail account that doesn't harbor private information that could be hacked.
- If you absolutely must post your email on public forums, disguise your email so it isn't easily recognized by hackers or spam bots. Simply typing your email out as email@example.com makes you a target for easily accessible hacking, but typing out each word, such as "sample at hotmail dot com," ensures that the email address isn't recognized by the tools that hackers use to scan the web for vulnerable email accounts. When your email is kept private, it's less likely to be targeted.
- Even when you take precautions, your account could still be hacked. When a hacker gains access to your Hotmail, one of the first things he will do is change your password to deny access. You can reset your password by using the "forgot your password?" Link on the sign-in page. Then, choose a password that is more difficult to guess. If your account has been accessed or failed access attempts have occurred on your account, Hotmail may ask for your cell phone number. Hotmail will then text you an access code which you can use to sign in for further protection.
