Why You May Want to Register Your Name on Multiple Email Providers Even if You Do Not Plan on Using that Service!

With the proliferation of spam, cyber attacks and just some bad actors out there, it may be a good idea to register your name as well as your family members name for your own safety…

We have registered all of our family names on the big five at the time of registration, gmail, hotmail, outlook, yahoo and icloud…. these are no longer the biggest…see below

Even if you do not plan on using the provider, it may make sense to register so some “bad Actor” does not pose as you…

Ok, we get it, with a weird last name like ours, it was not that hard, those with more normal names may have a tougher time, but you may still want to try…. bad guys are not going away!

The Largest Email Providers

The following is a snap shot of the last frame of this neat graphic from Statics and Data

Not sure if any of you noticed the last few videos are not coming through email notification well…but we did… and it is currently being fixed….

Hence the Snapshot, we know that will work…

Here is the actual embedded video… if you see a video, it has been fixed, if just a link, not fixed yet…

There you have it… another in our Why series AND a light, fun and hopefully helpful post labor day article!

Have a Great “Register Your Name on that Email” Day!
