What is the attraction of free email services?
Many service providers offer free email accounts (such as Yahoo!, Hotmail, Gmail, etc. in foreign countries; 163, QQ, Sina, etc.) in China. These email services typically provide us with a browser interface to access our emails. In addition to saving money, other benefits are provided:
Accessibility – because we can access our accounts from any computer, if we can’t close to your computer or being relocated and no ISP, the service can be supplied normally. Even if we can remotely access ISP-based email accounts, if we use public computers or shared wireless hotspots and worry about exposure to major accounts, it is ideal for relying on free email accounts. Competitive features – Since there are so many service providers in competition, they now offer excessive additional features, such as large storage, spam filtration, viral protection, and enhanced fonts and graphics. Additional features – Service providers will add additional software or services (for example, instant messages) to pack the free email account to attract customers more and more common.
Free email account is also a valid tool that reduces the number of spam received at the primary email address. We do not need to submit our primary address online, request a service or participate in an online forum, but a free auxiliary address can be set.
What are the risks of free email services?
All things have their own two-sided, and we are facing a certain risk while using it, so we should not use them to send sensitive information. These businesses are unpredictable, may have no firm commitment to protect us from a variety of threats or provide us with the best service.
