Also avoid clicking unknown links sent to your email address because that’s one of the best and easiest way a hacker can get into your account.

I mostly recommend this security measure because it protects your account like 70% much. Try to get some 2FA app from Play store or app store like Google Authentication or Authy App.

Public WiFi can be used to hijack your email account. Most public WiFi do not have End-to-end encryption and hackers can easily get your info through Free Open Public WiFi.
