This article will show you how to fully secure the e-mail associated with your xat account to prevent anyone else from accessing it. The page covers four major email providers: Gmail, Hotmail, iCloud and Yahoo Mail. If your e-mail provider is not listed, contact them and ask about their extra security features to protect your account.

If you are a paid user (if you have purchased xats) you can request an email change by opening a ticket.

Gmail

You can protect your Google e-mail account by enabling two-step verification, which includes features such as phone verification, authenticator app, back-up codes, and security keys.

Hotmail/Outlook

Hotmail/Outlook allows you to secure your email by using two-step verification. Visit this link to find out more.

iCloud/Me/Mac

iCloud/Me/Mac now gives you the ability you to secure your email with two-step verification. Visit this link to find out more.

Yahoo! Mail

Yahoo! Mail allows you to secure your email by using two-step authentication. Visit this link to find out more.

Warning: We do not recommend Yahoo! email due to a change in policy that allows Yahoo to re-distribute your user accounts if they become inactive, or due to the fact that a recent data breach has leaked data from over one billion e-mail accounts. This is a considerable security risk. Please read more at Naked Security or CNN.
