My email has been hacked. I have been receiving spam and abusive messages on an ongoing basis.
So this is it. Your email has been hacked. I am so sorry. This is a completely unacceptable attack on my personal privacy. If you have no intention of replying to any of my emails please do not reply at all and I will delete your email as soon as possible.
To be clear, I’m not a hacker. The person who’s been sending me spam has done it by trying to contact me through my email address. But I’m an author. I don’t have to be concerned about hackers. All I have to do is go to the address we’re using for our email and then click on the link to send a reply. The only thing I’m going to do is disable my email account and all of my other accounts and change my password.
All of this is about you, and you, and you, and you.
Since in the end this will be a pretty tough task, I’ll just focus on the most important thing that you can do to make sure that you keep your email account and everything else you can keep in it.
If you happen to not use a password manager, then you should change your password as soon as you can. This is because the password manager, even if you use it, doesn’t really store the passwords you use. If you’re already using one of these password managers, then you should change your password as soon as you can. There’s also a risk that hackers or other bad people could try to log into your account when you’re not using your password manager.
There are a few reasons why you should change your password (for this and many other purposes) including security (you don’t want hackers or other bad people trying to gain access to your account), convenience (it takes longer to log into a website), and convenience (changing your password is something you should always do anyway). Whatever your reason is, I strongly suggest doing so as soon as possible. After all, hackers can only access accounts with passwords that you know.
