A simple way of protecting your free web email address such as yahoo/gmail

By abenoja ·
Greetings to all

I have always been contacted with friends when they have issue accessing their free email mostly on Yahoo and Gmail. A problem that may not be common but certainly can get your email accounts into problems when you lost a password or worst get into trouble resetting by answering personal questions.

Best option:

Make sure you have identified an alternative email address other than your main, if your main is Gmail make Yahoo as an alternative. In this way you can always send a reset link to each other if in case something is wrong or compromised in your login details.
Example: Make Yahoo email a backup email for Gmail and Gmail to Yahoo
Note: It's best to make sure password are secure, the above suggestion is a backup mechanism if problem arises :-)

Hope this will be a helpful tips to some as this kind of setup save me a lots of times :-)
