Lately it has bothered me the fact that one of my email accounts is compromised in some way despite its long and random passphrase. He would have to pay for hell, since it is indeed a gateway to a large part of any other variable value account he owns.
What I wonder then is, how can I optimize the security of my email account?
All my email accounts are hosted on siteground under a custom domain of mine. This service has no way to provide 2FA for email accounts unlike Gmail. As far as gmail is concerned, I travel a lot for long periods of time, which creates some problems, since they tend to block your account when you travel abroad and lose access to the telephone number with which you set up your account (this loss access to the telephone number is usually permanent in my case).
I suppose there are basically two things I can do, besides avoiding accessing my email in a "foreign system" or in a "foreign network", and that is:
1. Make sure that I use random passwords of a considerable length of characters.
2. Acquire 2 factor authentication.
Is there any way I can alter the configuration of my hosting in any way to acquire 2FA for a custom domain, which then applies if I use a third-party email client such as Outlook or Thunderbird?
My only & reasonable option & # 39; Is using gmail? If yes, is there a way to avoid the phone verification problems that break me every time I move?
Also, is there an email client such as thunderbird that can handle the possible 2FA request? I have many email accounts that I have to manage in general, so if I can not save all of them in one place, that would be a big inconvenience. I do not care, I'm signing & # 39; once a day with 2FA, as long as the session remains active.
