Safe mail

Discussion in 'Products & Tools' started by Orol, Oct 14, 2018.

    My mail was hacked. I used mail gmail. I had no problems with it. I thought there was an update and I'm doing everything right. I received letters from gmail. This is the only thing that was strange.
    Now I can't go to my mail. I lost my database in 10 years. My friends show me letters from my mail. They receive requests to transfer money to my account. I didn't do this and can't access my email.
    I heard about mail hacking and personal data leakage. I thought it was so far away from me. I didn't think about safety.
    What should I do? How can I restore access? I don't want to use gmail anymore.
    I want to find mail and feel safe.
    Do you know safe mail? What do you use?

    You should be able to recover your account

    If you no longer want to use gmail there are other cloud providers or you could just buy your own hosting and create your own webmail. The spam filtering and security is generally inferior but you may find that you fly under the radar.

    I can't recover my account. I think it doesn't matter. I don't want to deal with gmail.
    I don't want to create my new mail, I don't have so much time.
    Can you say the name of the mail? Do you feel safe?
    I don't know how to communicate safely. I don't believe in any service.
    I hope for help.

    People who are "time poor" use services such as outlook.com, Gmail, and Hotmail
    People who have plenty of time are able to have DIY email

    You need to decide just how badly you need to be able to walk away from Gmail. Personally, I'd be trying to recover the account if only so that my friends stop getting scam attempts.

    Did you hear about the leak in Gmail? I receive in the mail the data of my clients, I have no right to distribute them. All information fell into the hands of other people. I can't risk it anymore.
    Do you have DIY email? Did you create the mail yourself? Have you had this experience before? Can you share your experience?
    Are you sure your data is safe?

    I use gmail

    however, all my sites have email as part of the hosting and there is a inbuilt webmail that comes with those.

    Alternatively, you could abandon webmail altogether and download to outlook or thunderbird. Then all you have to do is worry about the security of your device.

    I will give my access to mail to another service. I'm sure that it's completely unsafe.
    Have you heard of other mails?

    I know all these services. They are unsafe. I found this information in Google. I found many more options for services. Protonmail caused the most confidence. Information on the Internet can be posted by scammers. It could be the same people who hacked me. I want to learn from living people.

    I don't think that there are totally safe and private mail services..
    You can try some EU projects like eclipso.eu or gmx.com
    They don't ask you for any information in order to verify it's you and have another privacy policy.
    Moreover don't forget to create a unique and strong password in order to protect yourself.

    I've already mentioned that for now I don't know any totally private emails and just gave you some other services to try.
    I think that emails of big corporations like google or yahoo are hacked more often in comparison with others.

    I'm afraid to try unverified mails. I can lose my data again. I don't want it.

    Then you can try pigeon mail if birds still remember how it works.
    As I'm sure there are nothing totally secure on the web now.

    I think we will make friends and exchange information with the help of birds) It should be fun and safe. No one will even think about our way of communicating.

    I'd prefer something more reliable..
    There are good encrypted messengers for example. And as for email I don't also worry much as I don't have any issues with it.

    I didn't understand what you advise me to choose from mail services and messengers. I think you can be trusted. Especially after the birds)))

    It's better to use secure email services.
    I would recommend you to try protonmail.

    Did you use this service? What do you know about his privacy? Do you trust him?

    As for mail service eclipso.eu is good one. I never had any issues with that and even didn't receive any spam letters there.
    And as for messengers if you want encrypted one you can try https://echat.io/ it's totally encrypted and don't store your correspondence.
