Precautions You Need to Take While Accessing Your Gmail Account On a Public Computer

There are several process that you really need to take, when accessing your Gmail account on a public computer. When we talk of a public computer in this context, we are simply making reference to any computer which is used by other persons (or indeed any other single person), besides you.

Now, the first of the precautions you need to take, when accessing your Gmail account on a public computer would be that of ensuring you don’t allow the computer to ‘remember’ your password. If you allow the computer to remember your password, the account will essentially remain open to intrusion (even if you remember to sign out at the end of the browsing session).

Another precaution you need to take, when accessing your Gmail account on a public computer, is that of ensuring that you sign out of Gmail.com, after the mail account usage session.

Yet another precaution you need to take, when accessing your Gmail account on a public computer is that of restricting your Gmail usage to a ‘private’ browsing session. This is a question of first initiating a private session, before logging onto Gmail. This way, whatever you do during the session is ‘forgotten’ the moment you end the session.

Incidentally, these would still be good precautions to take when accessing a Yahoo Mail, an AOL mail or a Hotmail account on a public computer.
