While signing up with Gmail, you must have created your password and recovery information that includes your phone number and email address. You should keep updating your security information and passwords.
Limit the Apps that Need Google Account Authorization
There are so many apps that require Gmail account authorization and whenever you sign in to those apps through your Gmail account, they access all your information. Even if you stop using that app, they will still have that information. Thus, it is suggested that you should always limit the usage of such apps. Think before logging in with Gmail credentials.
Two-step verification act as an additional layer of security to your account. As soon as you activate this feature, you get the additional code on your phone or additional email ID every time you try to log in. You will only be able to sign in after inserting the unique code provided to you by Google.
Monitor Your Gmail Activities
You should review three things of your Gmail account i.e. account notifications, email forwarding and third-party actions. For this, go to Gmail Sign in & Security page.
