Yahoo is the most often hacked free email system based on hacked emails we receive. Hotmail, Gmail, AOL and All others can be hacked easily if you are using an insecure password. The https:// in front means absolutely nothing when it comes to getting hacked. The thing that secures your email is a strong password. Click here to see how strong your password is.
One of the easiest way to create a secure password is to use an old phone number like (212)Du6-3124 as it contains letters, numbers and symbols. You can use dots, dashes between the number sets or parenthesis around the area code. Don’t use your current phone number as someone could guess that.
We used letters in our phone numbers back in the day. You may be too young to recall something like this. If that is the case use one of your common passwords and add some symbols and a 4 digit pin number that you can remember plus upper and lower case letters. You can also swap out letters for symbols. I had a friend that used something like [email protected] where the letter a is replaced with @.
