Some days ago i was wondered because my account got hacked.I didn't realize that without sharing passwords and my login detalis my account could be hacked.But hackers can that's why they called hackers.
I had not enough knowledge about hacking before i hacked that how its work.But i am little bit wise now :p I am sharing this thread to prevent/avoid hacking of your account from those bastards.
I know some question arising in you mind:
Is it so easy to hack an email account? OR Is it so difficult for people to protect their email account from getting hacked?”
The simple answer of those question is “Absolutely NOT!“. It is neither easy to hack an email nor difficult to protect an email account from being hacked.
If this is the case then why many peoples lost their account?The answer is very simple.They do not know how to protect themselves from getting hacked! In fact, most of the people who lose their online accounts to hackers are not the victims of hacking but the victims of trapping. They get hacked not because they are hacked by some expert hackers, but because they are fooled to such an extent that they themselves give away their password.
Now i will mention some common points by following them you can protect your self from hacking.
1.By avoiding Website Phishing/spoofing:
Wot is website spoofing?
This is the act of creation of website similar to original one.Like making a website design similar to ET for the purpose of cheating.
How its works?
They(hackers) make account on Sites and sent pm to users in very attractive language like visit this link for VIP membership bla bla.. So, most people would believe this as the original site and lose their passwords.When you try to access your account on those links then you lost your passwords and login details.
1.Immediately report such scams to site staff.
2.Never try to login/access your online account from those sites.
3.Always type the URL of the site in the address bar to get into the site. Do not click on a hyperlink to enter the site(would be best not vist that link).
2.By using Anti-Keylogger/Spywares:
Wot are keyloggers?
It is a computer program that records every keystroke made by a computer user, especially in order to gain fraudulent access to passwords and other confidential information.
The detailed description of keylogger and its usage is discussed in the post How to Use Keyloggers
. If you read this post you’ll come to know that it is too easy to steal the password using a keylogger program.
Use a good anti-keylogger/spyware to protect your system from hacking.
Here are some good anti-keyloggers.You can download these anti-keyloggers from torrent sites.

3.Avoid Weak passwords:
Wot are weak passwords?
Most of users choose a weak and easly trappable passwords who can be guessed by anyone else and cause loosing/hacking of account.
Pick a unique, strong password which is not easly to be guessable.Choose password which you can remind easily.Don't choose passwords same as your name or any identity which anyone can see.
4.Be careful on Accessing your Email from a Public Place:
Do you access your email from public places like cyber cafes? If so, you are definitely under the risk of losing your password.Because now a days most of cafe owner install keylogger in systems and when you logged in your emails from their then they steal your passwords.I am not saying stop using of cyber cafes.I know not all owners should be wicked.But must be careful and try to login with your personal computers.When matter comes of security didn't trust anyone.
Chance takers are accident makers.Be Safe!
