If you use any online service that doesn't have dual auth then be prepared for something like this.

Also don't use the same password for everything.

How do I go about activating?

 

I have two linked domains hosted on gmail severs but one is a .co addy and the other .london so it seems they're not under immediate threat, no @gmail.com

 

However some sensitive info gets transferred via e-mail which could cause a bit of headache if ever leaked.
