Your Email Can Be Used to Impersonate You
Once someone gets ahold of your email address and your password, they can use this information to impersonate you. If they have the necessary information, they could pretend they’re you and start sending emails to your friends and family to either get money or more information about other possible victims. Most people tend to avoid emails from people they don’t know, but if a friend or family member emails you, it’s possible that you’re going to answer it and even try to help them. Scammers and hackers try to take advantage of this situation to impersonate you to get ahold of your loved ones.
