The internet is great. Most people are comfortable with using it. But when you are an online user, everything can go completely wrong. You can encounter a malicious site, a website that is trying to defraud you, a scam, or a phishing email.
The internet can be a great thing, but it can also be a disaster waiting to happen. And with the recent spate of security vulnerabilities on websites, it’s just a matter of time until we become more aware of these issues. In fact, we have already. We’re seeing more and more online scams, and in the last year we’ve seen more than 10,000 websites go down for at least 30 minutes.
Of course, there are many good reasons to check your email for suspicious emails. But in general, there are things you can do to protect yourself. As with any other type of internet security, the best solution is simply to use a tool like MailGuard to help you monitor your mail. But if you’re worried about a site going down, there are other ways to help protect your account, such as enabling two-factor authentication.
The other thing to do is to set up a separate email address for each of your accounts. This lets you both have separate mailboxes, and it also means that if you ever want to disable two-factor authentication, you can do it without having to go into your accounts settings.
I used ToSmail years ago, but it is now on the way back. I really liked the ToSmail experience (though I still use Gmail), but there are some problems with it and I had to get over it. Not only is ToSmail limited to sending email, but it is also limited to one email account per domain. I have two Gmail accounts, one for work, and one for personal.
There is a new, to-the-point email app called web.communications, available for both Android and iOS. I think it’s fantastic. It’s not just a mail app, but a fully functional email app. It allows you to send and receive messages from both your own and someone else’s email accounts.
It’s also a great way to stay on top of things. You can use web.communications to easily stay up to date with your email address, contacts, and more. A single app, it’s also free.
web.communications is a web app, but it takes a lot of the setup work out of using your email address. So if you want to know if a particular email address is active, you can just check web.communications.
web.communications will also check your email address for any changes when you open it. You will see the web app’s progress of checking your email address.
web.communications is great for keeping up with what you’ve got going on in your life, but it’s not something you need to be using all the time. You might feel like you’re missing out if you don’t have it installed on your computer.
