The nightmare scenario is: When I realize that my cell phone or laptop is lost, I enjoy the hard-earned summer vacation.
Beyond the cost of replacing it, you may have lost years of photos and other files — and exposed yourself to some pretty horrifying consequences.
One of the places someone doesn’t want to snoop on is your inbox. Do not create folders with names such as “Medical Documents” or “Tax Information”.
Especially for Gmail users, a Google account is one of the most important on your device. There is an easy way to keep you out of the hands of malicious people.

How detailed is data tracking?
Google tracking is primarily for its profits, or for companies that pay a lot of money to target you with ads based on your data.
Speaking of which, how many data broker sites have you searched for your name online and found information about it? We received so many requests for steps to remove this information that we launched a new series on our website called opt-out on Tuesday. Every week, we will give you instructions to clear your profile from these sites.
You can regain a little bit of your privacy from sites like BeenVerified, PeopleFinders, SpyFly, ZabaSearch.

You may not know how detailed that information is. Advertisers don’t just know that you’re a mother of three from Florida, or a marketing executive living in Austin. Documents about you include your financial brackets, profits, political trends, shopping preferences and more.
I wanted to know more about this, so I sat down with the advertising CTO and recorded a podcast.
After all, data tracking is a big company. How big is it? Google’s parent company Alphabet earns about $ 420,000 each time Minutes.. You’re crazy, right? Not all of that money comes from advertisingBut it’s the most important slice of pie.
Fortunately, some of Google’s tracking can help you.

Check account activity
I talk to a lot of people who have been scammed, but most of the time I didn’t realize something was wrong until it was too late. A friend reaches out and asks, “Hey, what’s wrong with that strange Facebook message?” Alternatively, the emails you haven’t sent will appear in your Outbox. To make matters worse, you may notice strange charges on your credit card or receive notifications about loans in your name.
However, there are several ways to find a malicious person before doing any harm. This tip will also help you find snoops. Are your friends and family poking at your Google or Gmail account? Here’s how to find out:
- Move to google.com/devices.. If you haven’t already signed in, sign in to your account.
- A list of devices is displayed here. These are computers, smartphones and tablets that are currently signed in or signed in within the last 28 days.
Each session (or logged-in instance) is recorded, so the same device is displayed multiple times. You don’t have to worry about it.
In addition to the current session, you may also see devices that have been inactive for a long time, such as old phones or computers that you no longer use. These devices can be signed out remotely.
- Just click on what you need and sign out. This will completely remove access to your Google Account from your device.
You can also use this page to find connected devices such as Android phones. It’s convenient.

- Click deviceThen select Find my device, Google[デバイスを検索]Go to the page.
What if I find a computer, phone, tablet, or device that I don’t recognize?
- Click on the device Do you not recognize anything? or Sign out.. Again, this causes the device to sign out remotely.
Next, you need to protect your account. Change the password to prevent the logged-in user from changing the password again. Do not reuse your old password or choose one that is easy to guess. This is the time to pull out all the stops.
Password managers may be the best bet, as it is difficult to remember a strong password. The good thing is that these programs can do more than just remember logins.
