You might think that your internet banking account is more important than any other online account that you have, but not all people think the same. There are almost of the surveyed people think that their email account is more important than their banking account.
If you ask me the same question, my answer to you is Yes personally and for general, is Yes and No.
Well, this is because most internet banking account is protected with two factor authentication. It is not really easy to compromise one’s banking account compared to the email account.
But before that, what makes an email account so valuable?
Basically, your email account is the place to go whenever you need to do a reset account password. Give you an example. If you had your Twitter’s email account compromised, how hard is it for the attacker to gain full control of your Twitter account?
Not at all right?
So you see, many people take their email account security lightly. They think that it is not really important because your email account simply does not contain any money.
But then again, imagine this:
If you have 10 online accounts that related to one email account, then this email account is extremely important. This is because if the attacker has access to your email account, he can easily go to the 10 online account site to do a password reset. After that, the reset password procedure will normally be sent over to the email address.
As a result, I wouldn’t say my bank account is super important. Although it carries ll my cash, but it is not really difficult to break a bank’s procedure. I am sure even if you want to reset your online banking password, you will need to go through certain process. And even if you manage to get the password, you will need to have my second factor authentication which is my mobile phone for my country’s practice.
As a result, don’t under-value your email account. Protect your email account to the fullest and if you have any problem in protecting your email account, just refer to my post on 7 sure-fire ways to protect your email account.
