Top Best Methods To Prevent Your Gmail From Being Hacked by Cyber Criminals



Read the Top Best Methods To Secure Your Gmail Account From Being Accessed By Cyber Criminals

Today seems to be a good day as i have come across several methods that can be performed to prevent your Gmail Account from getting hacked.

Gmail accounts which is controlled by Google Inc are now vulnerable to hackers and the rate at which gmail accounts are being hijacked by hackers is at a very high extent. We all know the usefulness of Gmail accounts being one of the best Email hosting platform that can be used to access all Google Products with all in one username and password, yet all of a sudden it's gone. Sad as it may sound but do you know that we are actually the one creating room for hackers to access our accounts?
Let's go into the proper business for today.

15 Best Methods To Ensure A Proper Security Of Your Gmail Account.

#1. Avoidance of Phishing Mails.
Try never to open any phishing mails which are usually found in the Spam folder. You know, spam messages are automatically moved into the spam folder for safety purpose. Though if you think the messages are not really spam, then you can view the mail and follow the link. But if the mail doesn't attract any sign of trust from you please don't try clicking on the link as it may be a way of accessing your Gmail account.

You may receive an email carrying the following headlines...
*** Your BVN has been deactivated.
*** Your Amazon Shopping has been shipped.

*WARNING* Do not click on the provided link.

#2. Using Ugly Email
This is the type of Gmail usually used in recognizing tracking mails. To get this;

Just make a search for “Ugly Email“ in your  Google Chrome browser ( i recommend you should make the search in Chrome Web Store). Haven seen the Ugly Email from your search result, just click “Add to Chrome” and a new tab will be opened.
This Ugly Email will be added to your Chrome and you can find it at the top right corner of your Chrome browser.
Now to know if your Ugly Email is rocking well, log into your Gmail account and open existing mails or even new mails and if you should ever see a nasty eye that is somehow devilish in any of the mail you opened, then you should know it is a tracking email.

#3. Try Using a Secure Connection.
This a very important task you must carry on when logging in your Gmail account.
Try using the secure connection that is seen as HTTP usually before the web address.
To do this:
Go to Setting»»General»»Browser Connection or better still, you should try using VPN like UltraSurf for login.

To get UltraSurf on your browser, it's an extension so just go to Settings»»Extensions  scroll down to the end and click add more extensions, from the displayed interface make use of the search bar by searching for UltraSurf and from your result click Add to Chrome.
So whenever you are browsing with the browser, your connection becomes anonymous, though you can disable the UltraSurf if you wish not to use it for some websites.

#4. Always Check Filter Forwarding and POP/IMAP
You really need to take this so serious as hackers may try adding filters on your Gmail account. These filters can secretly pass on emails so long the filter remains in your Gmail account.
To be on a safer side, try getting rid of any filters that looks suspicious to you.

#5. Try Using Incognito.
This may sometimes be useful most especially when you are surfing the internet with public devices found in places like Cyber Cafe, hotel and/or others. The usefulness of this Incognito or Private browser is to help you secure your connection so as not allowing cookies to store your web activities.

#6. Google 2 Step Login Verification.
This is one of the best security provided by google. Each time you try to login from another device, haven given your login credentials, you'll be asked to take any of the following google login verification process;
  1. Text me a code
  2. Provide your backup gmail account ( if any)
  3. Using google authentication app and others.
But i'm only in support of the text code as it is the safest means of verifying you are the one trying to login. Of course the hacker can never provide the security code sent to your device for login.
#7. Track your Account Activities.
This is a very important task you should always do. You should always keep an eye on your gmail account to track every activity going on in your account.
To do this, just login to My account and at the lower right corner of the platform you will see “Last Account Activity” just click on details. There, you will see the devices accessing your account as well as the time and location they logged in. So if you notice any unauthorized login, all you have to do is change your password at that moment before the hacker does something else.

#8. Avoid ignoring Gmail security alert.
Most of us usually make this nasty mistake of ignoring security alerts sent by google. You should know that Google only send those security alerts when they feel it's necessary for you to update your security. It may be that they noticed something fishy concerning your account and to make sure it's not hacked, they'll send you an alert to update your security.

#9. Try removing apps connected to your account.
Do you know that apps are connected to your gmail account? Whenever you use your gmail to sign up for any third-party app, they are automatically connected to your gmail account. Hackers can even try to connect an app to your account via play store and other means. So i recommend you should always remove unauthorized apps from your account by logging into www.accounts.google.com.

#10. Always update your number.
Never forget to always keep your mobile number up-to-date and if you should ever lose your phone number then try getting a new one and link it to your gmail account because that's what google will always use to send you security code.

Other Tips include:
>Do not disclose your password.
>Use a recovery email i.e a secondary email.


So above are the methods of securing your Gmail account from getting accessed by hackers. I hope i've been able to provide adequate security tips for securing your gmail account.  Please kindly share this post to others using the share buttons provided below.

Name: Glodirect
APN: glosecure

2.  Open the TweakwareRed VPN app and input the following configurations in their appropriate text fields.

Proxy server: http://redirect.glo.com
Proxy type: Real Host

Now you will have to click OK and select your server (United States is preferable) and wait for it to connect of which there will be a change in the displayed icon.

Etisalat 0.0k free browsing configuration

1. Leave your phone APN settings the way it is, and open the TweakwareRed VPN app. In the handler menu, input the below configuration at where appropriate.

Proxy type: Real Host
Proxy server: http://ent.nxtfwd.com/s/d/etisalat_ng#openModel

2. Click OK and select your preferred server, then wait for it to connect.

2. Using InspectLet
InspectLet is an online tool that can help you track out the IP Address of the person while chatting on any social platform. Why i love InspectLet is that the service tracks everything when a person visits a website.

How to get started with InspectLet?
You just need to register on InspectLet and once you logged into the service you will be provided with a tracking code which you have to install your tracking code on a web page.

Now here comes the real game, after installing the tracking code simply send victim the link and make him open the link. InspectLet will record all activity along with the IP address and other details.

Selecting a Wi-Fi Channel
Using a Wi-Fi network being shared to more connected users may slow up or reduce the bandwidth you are using because Wi-Fi signals are always projected in paths called channels, and every other connected users maintains different channel, but it may be that your channel is receiving a weak Wi-Fi signal and you can fix this by selecting your router to focus on a less crowded channel.

Below are methods to locate a Wi-Fi channel with strong signal strength on Android, PC, and MAC.

Follow the steps below on how to run Wi-Fi analyzer in your smartphone.
1.  Open the app and you will see a graph view (by default), just press the menu key/button on your Android device to bring out the views and select ‘Channel rating’ as your view.
2. Start a scan to check the signal strengths of all available channels.
3. And from your scan result, you can select the best location for the channel you are connected to.

For PC Users
Download Acrylic Wi-Fi professionals in your windows.
1.  On ‘APs’ select your Wi-Fi card

2. Click on ‘start scanning’ to scan for all available networks, then from their result you can check their signal strengths and choose the best.

For MAC Users
Just download and install Wi-Fi Scanner (Mac version)
Launch the app, find the ‘scanning’ section to scan out all devices. And from your result, you can choose the best Wi-Fi network for use by analyzing them.

That's all about selecting Wi-Fi Channel.

Reset Router
