Email Security Best Practices

In a digital volunteer environment, it's essential to protect yourself on the internet. Safeguarding your email and digital identity has become increasingly important. As an organization that offers virtual volunteerism and frequent use of email, we want to recommend email security best practices to ensure our volunteer community is protecting itself against bad actors.

 

Learning Ally recommends the following best practices to help you protect yourself against bad digital actors: 

 

Change your password regularly and use a complex password. Top tips for a secure password

  • Do not reuse passwords
  • Do not use information about yourself such as age, name, city, pet’s name, etc
  • Use special characters such as $@!#

To do list

 

Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) - based on your provider

  • Many email providers offer two-factor authentication as an additional security measure. This method requires a password and some other form of identification, such as a biometric or a mobile phone number, to access the two-factor authentication.
 

Setup a recovery method with a phone number or alternate email address

  • Most email providers will walk you through this step when setting up your email for the first time. However, you can also find guidance on setting up a recovery method from your email provider in the settings section.

Run a virus and malware scan

 

Check if your email has been compromised on other platforms

 

You can always find more email tips on our Support CenterIf you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Volunteer Q&A and Conversation Event Recap

On December 6th, 2021, our Learning Ally Production team and volunteers came together for an afternoon of Q&A and conversation. During this meeting, we shared new volunteers opportunities, how to get involved, demonstrated the new audiobook work areas, connected volunteers with staff members, and provided opportunities for volunteers to ask questions and chat with us. We enjoyed seeing so many of you attend live and look forward to having you volunteer with us!

 

If you'd like to learn more about volunteer opportunities within audiobook production, we encourage you to watch the recording of the event below. To get started volunteering today, browse our available volunteer opportunities.
