Enable two-step authentication where available

Increase the security of your email by switching over to gmail. Then enable gmail's two-factor authentication on your account. It is easy to install and once you are done, you won't even notice the extra protection. You just need to enter a random pin every 30 days into your browser or whenever you use a new browser. Basically what this does is make it impossible for someone to get into your email on a remote machine by just guessing your password or successfully tricking you into giving it to them by well designed phishing spam. Some of which is getting so good it looks real so protect yourself. This is critical to do because most people send the forgot password emails to all their financial accounts to their primary email...so once someone gets into your email, they can literally destroy your life. Please don't skip over this step.
