Nefarious Activity on the Web.
I don't know how many of you are aware of the new security measures Google has taken for it'* mail client, but I finally got my initiative to take action and start using them. The first feature warns you if someone from another location not likely to be you logs in to your account. I logged in this afternoon and saw that someone had recently logged into my account from Mexico. Whether this was a fluke or actually someone logging in, better safe than sorry. I always use extremely long passwords and practice safe internetting, but that alone is not good enough.
Google also offers 2 step verification either through an application for your android or other phone, or through text/voice messages. This adds an extra layer of security to keep unwanted people out. I have this enabled on my account and it'* hardly a nuisance. Once every 30 days you have to enter a code after logging in which is either texted to you or sent directly to your verification application. They also have you use separate one time use passwords for applications that connect to your Google account such as the android market, etc.
If you don't want someone snooping through your email, the time to act is now.
