  • You should be using a more secure email than gmail like tutanota or protonmail.

    • unless you are in the uk where the snoopers law has gone through so government can read your emails for upto a year after you wrote them regardless of provider

    • @wankiam
      Even so, protonmail and tutanota are the 2 best for totally free accounts. You can upgrade and get more media storage for pictures and videos and hold more email contacts but the free storage and contacts is big enough that you'd never max out.

      Protonmail is located in Switzerland and Tutanota is located in Germany. You can hold about 60 million contacts and 25 million images/videos depending on size of them.

      Tutanota uses a single password. Protonmail uses end to end encryption and the server themselves can't read messages sent or received. You can use a different password for public key. Tutanota uses 1 password total to secure account. Protonmail uses up to 2 to secure your account.

  • Just checked out how to do it on my own gmail you have to:
    open your gmail, and click the cog drop-down then settings
    then click on the accounts tab and where it says send mail as click edit info to the right of your name then in the name section enter your new name in the box (click the bulletpoint next to it) and save changes.
    just found that gmail has a method when you click help it's better than mine

    • DID you read the very first line?

      "You can change the name that's linked to your email address, but not the email address itself."

    • @mikemx55 that's what shows up on the to: in the e-mail so it still changes what people will see it as, otherwise you have to get a new account.

    • True. Just said it because he mentioned the xyz@gmail. com example.

  • The way to do it, is to create a new email account, and link it to the old one, so that you would still receive all the messages sent to the other one.
