What should I do if my email was compromised, PC Pitstop?? Well, glad you asked, the best thing to do is to change your password. To stay protected create strong and unique passwords and don’t use the same password for multiple online accounts.
Understand that scams exist and use caution online, don’t open messages or click on links if you don’t know the sender.
Criminals may use information they gather about you from social media in order to make their messages more appealing or appear more authentic. Also the best way to avoid malicious messages is simple —don’t share your email address online unless you need to.
