Free Email Service
We know Google, Yahoo, Outlook as free email service providers. In a technological world, when something is free, we look it suspiciously that something is hidden. But without any wary, with full trust and confidence, we use services of the above-given brands. They are now well established and provide full support to its customers.

Why to wary with free email services?
Scammers: The Internet is full of scammers, the free email service providers may be offering filtering service and protection to a certain limit only. The scammers can try to get private information, install malware or viruses on the computer, get hold of a computer remotely, steal financial information. If such emails are blocked or landing in a junk folder, then its all good with free email service provider, but a problem arises when such emails lands in an inbox. For sure something is not right with the provider and its time to switch.

Very Less using 2F authentication: Google admits that very few use 2F authentication, people want easier authentication, not more authentication. Hence, the free email service providers are more focused on email validation and authentication, using SPF, DKIM, and DMARC.
