I’d decided and acted. Hotmail just ain’t making the cut these days in terms of security. It’s lack of a reliable 2nd factor authentication (2FA) is the last straw.
Google is better. There’s a Google Authenticator app for iPhone that I can install and setup with multiple gmail accounts.
This makes it tougher for anyone to hack my email account. And indirectly, this gives my social media accounts an additional layer of protection.
