Review Gmail® forwarding and delegation of mail
If you are an out-and-out Internet user, then you must be well aware of data hacking and phishing troubles associated with it. You must have followed the guidelines that come up time to time to protect your Internet security from getting breached. Won’t it be good if someone else takes up this responsibility? Gmail is thoughtful enough to take measures for securing your e-mail ID and its content. It has introduced some features that notify you and take your final consent before you use certain functions. Gmail is broadcasting a news according to which whenever you use the forward and delegation features of Gmail, a message box prompts asking you to review the settings of these features. This is done to remind you about the settings you might have activated years ago.
This awareness program is launched to function for a week to jog your memory regarding the settings that you had enabled years back. This message in a pink box will flash up at the top region of the Inbox, every time you access the forward and delegation features. The message asks for a confirmation to be made whether to keep the settings activated or to alter them.
While reviewing the settings, if you observe that your e-mails has been forwarded or delegated to one or more unknown accounts, it means that someone has hacked your Gmail account. Don’t panic! Rather just change your password immediately using complex combinations of letters and symbols that cannot be easily decoded.
