Re: more secure e-mail

Well, I have google accounts and found out one of my g-mail was in the data hack from facebook. I always change all my passwords and have 2 factor on the accounts. I was just concerned with the e-mail being tied to my card or bank accounts. So I wanted to find out if fast mail would be a better service to have my accounts tied too for dealing with things like card accounts and the bank account. I use one of my accounts specifically for all the group lists and the other is for dealing with the bank and cards and any other personal info.
I was reading up on it, they say they get rid of spamm and blocks e-mail addresses to your account. I like google but,some spamm keeps getting my mail or I get spamm messages from friends who had their account hacked with porm.
I do not have a Microsoft account tied to my outlook account and I am running a windows local account. I noticed my icloud account never gets spam; go apple!

Often times, people don't want to use Google because of misconceptions, so it's fine, I think, for people to make recommendations. We all are on here knowing that we can choose to accept or reject any feedback anyone provides.
As for using Google or not using Google, a lot of times, people will make these snap product decisions because a product isn't doing something desirable, or is doing something undesirable. I would recommend that, before changing what you have been using, you examine your reasons, and you get to know the product you are using to determine if there are settings and options that can mitigate the undesirable behavior. Often times, people who use Google products are unhappy because they believe that Google is using information in ways which are undesirable. There are privacy and security settings which a user can change to limit what data Google does have and use. Often times, things go in the media that end up sensationalized. Simply reading terms of service and privacy policies may help quash those beliefs. These are simply examples. I don't know what the reason is for wanting to use Fastmail over Gmail, but I would say that you should be well-informed about that change. And finally, if you believe that Fastmail will provide better security or privacy than Google, I believe that belief is a bit misguided, although anyone can believe whatever they wish.
