I have noticed a recent spate of Yahoo and Hotmail email hacks lately among friends and relatives, and today my account was hacked. I keep one of my other email addresses in the contacts so that I would know if it ever happened to me.
I have now ported all contacts from my five accounts to my phone synced w/gmail, with a mobile security app acting as a back-up.
Just wondering how effective or safe this might be. Any thoughts on possible con's with this approach? I would love to have my contacts as phone-only, unsynced, but I realize the possibility of my phone being dead or destroyed would put me in a bad position.
Another question I have, is there any way to limit access to my email account to IP's located in the U.S. only (or North America at the very least)? I know this can be easily worked around by hackers with an intent, but most of this crap is originating oversea's, and so far it has been phishing for money (Help, I was robbed in Spain!) or sending links to porn.
