Summary: Keep the software on your computer up to date and never share your passwords with anyone!

Different email providers have different security measures. Take a couple minutes to configure your account recovery options including security questions & answers, alternate email addresses, and mobile phone numbers that are allowed to receive password reset requests. A little time now can help save you a lot of frustration and could even protect you from permanently losing access to your email account.
