      My GMAIL was found on the Dark Web recently. I knew it had been caught up in a few
      breaches. So I checked my Google account, but didn’t see anything abnormal.
      What else should I do?

      Hello David,

      I would start off by scanning your computer with anti-virus and anti-malware software.
      Second I would step up my password game by using 12-15 characters and avoiding real words, so changing all of your passwords is a good idea as well.

      Enabling two-factor authentication on any service accounts that offer the feature.

      Practice smart habits moving forward, only visit sites that have HTTPS at the beginning of the URL, possibly setting up a junk or garbage email account that can be used for unimportant profiles. So many sites require a sign-up process these days, and having them tied to your main email account isn’t ideal.

      Lastly, taking a close look at your financial accounts, make sure no money is missing, and look for any suspicious transactions.

      I hope that helps!
