Check out these tips from Google's Safety Center for ideas including:

  • Use a strong password, and never share your password.
  • Always SIGN OUT of Google when you leave your computer.  Don't just close your browser.
  • Set up your computer, laptop, tablet or phone to automatically lock with a PIN when it goes to sleep.

Visit Google’s Security Checkup often to review your account for suspicious activity and remove unwanted access.  (Log into Google > go to my account > go to Security Checkup > Go to Get started).

If you think your account was hacked, tell your teacher right away so they can help you. If you know it, also change your password as soon as possible with the Student Password Hub. ​
