I have been getting regular alerts (almost daily) of someone trying to get into my email account from Russia - or someone logging into my account from Russia. I keep changing my password but I'm still getting alerts. What else can I do to protect my account?

    Hello Sharon,

    Thank you for your question and for reaching out with your question today.

    In this situation, changing your email password is not going to stop them trying to access your email. Because your email address remains the same, they are simply attempting to guess your password and gain access. The best advice I can give is to make your password as secure as possible. Random letters, numbers, symbols and 15 characters plus will make it very hard to break into.
