    Thanks to NiceHash for this information.


    The global internet industry is facing the security issue when the attacker acquires access to the victim's email account. This can be easily avoided by increasing security on your email account by enabling 2-STEP VERIFICATION.

    First, visit haveibeenpwned.com, where you can check if your email address has been compromised in any data breach. If you find your email on the list, this guide is even more important! The attacker could have your email address and password that you used at the time of the breach on the platform that was compromised.

    Note that attacks happen every day, enabling 2-step verification will take you 5 minutes of your day, and will make virtually impossible for the attacker to gain access to your email account. This will protect your accounts on other platforms.
