The fact that technology has brought with it great advancements in the web mail accounts is beyond doubt. Gone are the days when people used to miss out on their emails because they are not close to their normal computers. This is a simple guide on how you should access your sbcdglobal account without putting your personal information at risk from a public internet cafe or library.
The first step is logging into the site and singing in into your sbcglobal account. To do this you obviously need an internet connection on the computer that you are using. Type in your unique member name in the top box and open the drop-down menu that is beside the name and look down the list to find SBCglobal.net and then click it. Sign into your SBCglobal account by adding your password and clicking on the “Sign In” box that is just next to the “Password” box.
You can now comfortably manage your account the way you usually do at your computer at home or when using your personal computer in the office. Note that if you decide to delete messages they will not be available in your other computer just as they are not available in your web mail account when deleting using the other computer. The buttons that you use like forward, reply or delete messages are the same as the ones you use on your computer.
Using a public computer to access your SBCglobal mail account can be a bit risk if you are not careful with your personal details. After finishing managing your account you should ensure that you sign out before leaving. You definitely don’t want the next person using the computer to access your private email account. To do this click on the “ Sing Out” or “Log Off” link. Remember that when signing into your private account, you should make sure no one is watching you as you type in the name and password of your account. Hackers can easily access your personal information from an insecure computer library and try to see if they can use it to make a killing.
If you are downloading attachments to any public access computers, you should be careful because other users might be able to access them after you have finished using the computer. It’s always advisable to be cautious whenever you download documents or data that is very crucial especially your personal information. Never use public computers to purchase things online or make any online orders. Someone might steal your credit card or debit card details or better still use the computer to read the information that you wanted to keep private, hence end up causing you serious financial damages.
You should use the “Internet Options” to delete all the temporary files after using the public computer. It’s also good to delete all the cookies that were created during your use of the computer. The good thing is that you can use the SBCglobal mail account password and even user name to log into your yahoo mail even from the public computer.
