It is always very difficult to admit that you could have avoided theft if you had been vigilant in advance. But it happens, you only have to learn from your mistakes.
I don’t want to be boring saying it that it could be done this way, or so. But in this case, it is really a mistake to have mail that does multiple tasks. That is, it has to do with finance and the forum.

Regarding 2FA it's always a two edged sword giving a false sense of security: there is no security advantage setting up a 2FA on your mobile while you access your website with the very same mobile. 2FA should be enabled, for critical services, on a different mobile or computer the one you are using to access such service.


Now the question. If I have a very good password in my mail that is difficult to crack, and I have 2FA, if I log in from another IP, I receive SMS notifications, isn't that enough? And also the mail that is tied to the forum is not used anywhere else.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

Yeah I guess having 2FA is enough for more of a security to your email, even me I use this, it sends me a notification every time I'm logging in, trying to change my password, detect unknown devices and has my 8 number code offline security. I guess this is enough for protecting your email. The email I used to this forum is protected also, it has a different sim card in my drawer for 2FA  Cheesy

Thanks for the security reminder!  (Just an FYI to everyone who may not be aware, also take away any cell phone numbers you may have listed on your email accounts.  This is what gives hackers the ability to sim-swap).

I've personally set a fake email for my account, that way even if they do discover it, it can't be used to reset my password.

If you use this method, just make sure the domain can't be bought, since that way they could just create the email and reset it that way.

This is the thing that I'm talking about, using fake email address so whenever the hackers tried to steal my email, they will become fooled by this.

We all know that privacy and security is the number one thing to protect and strengthen when we use a platform such as like this forum.

You are responsible with your own account so it depends on you on how will you make your security strong enough to defend yourself from those hacks and scams that may attack you out of nowhere. Just work on how you will safely access the forum without fear of losing your account, be confident and protect your account at all times.

I had not been protecting my account ever since and they can hack this account anytime. I have no worries about it for I can still make a new one here. Anyway, I can get merit if I wanted to even just for member in rank. But, I am not that confident though to reach that rank but still it could be attainable. But I am not after for the rank, the best thing to be here in the forum is to learn from others and reading news about bitcoin. There are other users posting on successful story about bitcoin and there so much we can learn about them. Promoting projects is not really a priority but it can be like an incentives of course for letting the project pays you.

After reading the op, I immediately checked whether my email address here is hidden as stated. Good thing it is 'cause it's been a long time since I checked if my email is seen in public or not. It's not the email I use for important things, though, but I prefer for it to stay hidden just to be sure. I have multiple email accounts; one email for work; another for things involving money; and another for other purposes.

Gosh. Hackers are really everywhere. Let's always stay safe, everyone.

You are brave enough, and yes, your email is visible to all users. It is possible that you can easily create a second and third account, earn merit. But you do not take into account a certain point.
Each of us here on the forum values ​​our reputation. If your account is hacked, then many fraudulent activities can occur on your behalf (for example, a recent story with Twitter)
Agree, it's easier to tick a box and hide your email than to regret and prove something afterward.

The OP is not concern only on the account here in forum but also the security of every users by not showing off important details on the profile section that comprises of personal email, birthdate, social account displayed in the profile section. Like there is a guy who posted last few weeks almost all his personal identity so everyone warned him about his data.

If you dont care about your account then thats not a good atittude. Since you made an account here, you must have a sense of responsibility to protect it even you dont like.

Hackers are always there to exploit any loop holes or any negligence from us. Hiding the email will certainly prevent the hackers from accessing the account in one way. Also it has been emphasized many time to use 2fa in email and do not disclose your email address on which you have important banking or exchanges account.
