Best way to Protect your Gmail accounts



Today I’m going to tell you about protecting your Gmail account. Gmail is

considered to be one of the strongest accounts to break into. But recently, it

has been proven that it can be done. We have to be very careful in securing our

passwords so that other networks like Facebook, Orkut and Google Plus are not

compromised as well. Since social networking plays a prominent role in our life,

we have to secure our email accounts with which they are linked up. The Gmail

team has setup a 2 step verification process to strengthen your account. Here’s

how to do it.
