@gmail.com’s password is the most important key or tool to your safety online, guard it with all seriousness. Should you use easy password for everything else you register online, don’t try it with your google password.
The reason why your google password is the most important is because, all other loggings are tied to it; access to your google account could mean access to all other accounts of yours.
When you create a gmail, you use it as your android ID. You can log into other accounts with it or use it as backup to other accounts like WhatsApp. All your activities online could be synchronized into your google account. See it as the main entrance to your house. Once access is gained, major parts of your house is open.
You can easily recover your other accounts using your gmail in the event that you forget their password or in a case of hack. But what happens when you loose your google account to hackers or you forget the password? That is where the second key/tool comes into play.
Your phone number
Your phone number is as important as your google password. With your phone number, your google account can be accessed. This is done through recovery.
When you loose your google password, just go to recovery, then google will send you a reset code to the phone number attached to your google account through which you’ll easily reset your password. A scammer with your phone number can easily do the same thing. So what would you do if you lost your phone number?
First, report to the nearest police station. Criminals might have actually collected the sim to use it for crime. Remember, security agencies can easily track a registered line to the owner; you would be held responsible for any crime committed with your line.
Secondly, contact your service provider ASAP. Retrieving the line (welcome back) as early as possible might prevent damages that could be done to your account. Remember too that your bank account might be linked/tied to your phone number, so act fast.
Activating SIM lock is a perfect way of securing your sim card in addition to using phone lock.
