You E-mail has been Hacked- What Should You Do
What should you do? ….Well, here are the first things you should do:
1. Go to a different computer than the one you primarily use (a phone or tablet will do) and immediately change your password. Make sure you mix in a pinch “Capital Letters” and a healthy dose of “special characters” For example if you wanted to use “timmy82703” as your password uses “T!mmy&27o3” instead.
The reason for the requirements of those characters as well as capital letters and numbers is so that computer programs that randomly guess or “brute force” your password, will have a much, much harder time arriving at your password if you have secured it properly. If your password is “sara”, well, it won’t take that long for a computer to hack that password.
2. Make sure that your Anti-Virus is up to date and that your computer is acting out of the ordinary.
