Your email typically traverses the Internet in plain text format. It’s like sending a postcard in the mail. Anyone with the means and motive – government agencies, ISPs, webmail providers, hackers, advertisers and even your competitors – can take advantage of this to steal sensitive data, facilitate identity theft, access credit card information, or provide more targeted advertising. We’re in the middle of an email snooping epidemic and unsecure email is a major liability.
