Once you’ve decided to protect your communications by adopting a private email account, choosing a good name for your email address is important.
Like any other form of communication, your email account name sends a message to anyone who sees it, and it will potentially be with you for many years to come.
Beyond that, there are practical considerations as well.
1) Has your email account been hacked in the past?
If so, you’ll want to choose a name that is significantly different from the one that was hacked.
2) Is this for you only, for your family, your professional practice, business, or other group?
First, choose a name you will want to live with forever.
3) Do you have a domain already?
If you already own a domain name, we can easily direct it to your secure email account.
4) How prominent or elusive do you want the name to be?
If you want to be easily recognized, that’s fine, but avoid using excessive personal information in your email address. Furthermore, try not use your birth year or relevant info used in security questions such as your pet’s name in your email address.
