Stop Someone Spying on Your Email

Step

Change your email password once every week.

Step

Install a high-security virus protection program and a spyware detection program on your computer. These will alert you to any malicious software that is already on your computer, and will let you know if anything is downloaded onto your computer.

Step

Log out of all browser-based email accounts when you are finished using them, and close the browsers.

Step

Check your computer settings to be sure that the "Save fields" option is turned off. If it is not, the computer might be saving email addresses and passwords as you input them.

Step

Always select "Never" when asked if you would like the computer to remember you, save your password or keep you logged in.

Speak on your cell phone only in places where you know no one is listening.
