Reduce the chances of your accounts being hacked

Use different email addresses for each of your services. That way if one of your email addresses is compromised, the rest are relatively safe.

How to go about this? The simplest route: use a service like to generate unique email addresses for each of your accounts.

More complex but more flexible: get your own domain. If you own a domain you can create as many email addresses as you like. For instance, by owning, I “own” all the email addresses associated with it, from to and everything in between. If you get an external email provider like, you can then set up your DNS to use fastmail’s email servers and deliver all that email to you. It’s more complex than but it’s ALL under your control.

And if you take either of these approaches be sure to get and use a password manager!
