Eset account security for insecure E-mail


Recommended Posts

I have a question about the eset account. I will use eset for multiple devices and therefore will need an eset account. 

I need to use an e-mail address as an account name. 
If my email gets hacked and somebody has access to it, can he also gain access to my eset account? If so... that literally means that he also has access to my PC and data on it?

An attacker could choose to reset your my.eset.com account password. A verification email would be sent to your email address and clicking the verification link would reset the password. However, even then the attacker could not get access to your data. In worst case with Anti-Theft enabled on the machine the attacker could see your device position and take photos after marking the device as missing.
