You may be on vacation, but hackers are not. Summer is the peak season for having your email account hacked, so Google, Hotmail and Facebook have implemented a system called 'two-factor authentication' to protect your login information.
“My Google email account was recently hacked into whilst I was on holiday in Slovakia. The hacker said that I had been robbed at gunpoint in Spain and robbed, then asked people to send money to a money transfer account in Spain,” read the email that arrived this week. “This has happened to other people, I gather.”
