How to Protect Your Google Account

Let’s me discuss a problem that can happen with every Google user. The truth is that your Google account can be hacked by “bad guys” but developers from Google do a great work fighting with them every day.  No matter it is your personal Google account, where are kept only your private messages, or it is a business G Suite account where important business correspondence with customers and partners is kept.

Risks for Your Google Account Data

Let me review some of the most frequent motives hackers may have:

  1. someone wanted to read letters of his wife
  2. someone wanted to get money for cracking
  3. someone knows the names of competitor’s clients.

They could delete your private messages, send out spam mail or make your messages public. The list of motives could be long. But the essence remains the same.

So what to do? How to protect your Google Account?

There are three ways how to prevent your data loss and avoid using weak passwords:

  1. Valid e-mail account listed as your secondary account;
  2. SMS
  3. Security question

Google Account Backup and Recovery with Spinbackup

However, neither way guarantees you 100% security. It just complicates hackers and sifts out amateurs. That’s why I would recommend the fourth way – cloud data backup and recovery.

The main advantage of this method is even if you have been run into the hacker’s attack, all your data is copied to another server, which nobody knows.  And the consequences of such an attack will be just a couple of extra clicks that would return everything in place.

Please note, you can always recover your data using Spinbackup which provides efficient backup and recovery service, and thanks to the innovative technology of Google, it does not require you to enter your Google password. It reduces the probability of intercepting your password during the transfer over the network. So do not put yourself at risk to lose all your data. Data Recovery is made easy with SpinBackup!
