I was only able to fit in two tips in the previous post but no worries, here are more things for you to look at.
To subscribe or unsubscribe? What to do?
You know those e-mail messages informing you of one thing or another and then at the bottom it says “To unsubscribe to this service, click on this link…” or something like that? Well, many are legit but here’s the thing – this tactic is also being used to get you to click on the link and gather information from you. What you should do, instead of immediately unsubscribing, is to first double check if you really have subscribed to that service. Otherwise, you just might find more spam mails in your Inbox. If you’re unsure, just mark the address as spam so that it can be filtered in the future.
Guard “important” e-mail addresses
Some people guard their phone numbers zealously. They would only give their numbers to people they know very well and people who they are ok with contacting them. How come, when it comes to e-mail, it seems that people are less guarded? It shouldn’t be the case. You don’t know who will end up knowing your e-mail address and start sending you stuff that you don’t need or worse, malware. If I were you, I’d set up another web e-mail account that is separate from your main e-mail account.
Remember: There is no such thing as absolute privacy
Whatever you code into your computer and send through e-mail is never ever really totally private. Just bear this in mind when writing anything. It will keep you safe.
