Can someone check to see if this works? There should be 5 battle log files...
Also, can anyone who knows more about how these things work point out if I have left a big security hole or anything by doing it like this?
If you were a spy, or a criminal, somebody who could expect that "people" are looking for them, and wish to do them harm, I'd say, not using a throw-away account was dumb.
Being that, this is not the situation... I think ...
, not really. Setup Google's security systems, like two-part password entry, and use a good password(*). This is of course valid for every account you have. Always remember, forums are one of the major source for stolen email addresses. Security is often abysmal to non-existent, and having databases stolen, with email addresses, forum-passwords, full names and post addresses (if recorded) is not a seldom occurrence.
But, that you know, that G-Mail account belongs to YOU, doesn't mean anybody else does. Just because the email address is 'known' doesn't really mean a lot by itself. That being said, there are hackers who mine the internet to look for cross-references. They use an email address to look for other places where it might be found, and look there for any information they can find.
But it is SO
unlikely that a hacker would come account this thread, in this forum, and see a link to to that Google Drive account, and then come up with the idea, that it would be worth his while to follow up and try to find more information about your account and you. Why would he do that? I mean, between hacking into the your account, ACG, or the NSA, I'd take the NSA. They probably have better porn on their hard drives.... probably....
Of course the ones who do this the best are Google, Facebook and co., mostly because people give away most of the information they want, for free, with out them having to do anything more than maintain a cookie in your browser, which tells them when you visit a site they are monitoring. Of course, they are not going to try to break into your email account, I mean, Google already has full access to it, and everything in it, but such is the modern world.
(*) What's a good password?
- As long as allowed by the site.
- Uses as many different characters as allowed by the site.
- Is used on one account only. Never use the same password for more than one site nor account.
- Change it regularly.
Further, having a long, complex password means, you cannot memorize it. Which means, you need a safe way to record it. I'm using KeePass
. It's fairly simple to use, and has a built in password generator, for which you can setup profiles for generating passwords in accordance with the rules of any site.
It's good that you think about your security while underway in the web, but in this case I wouldn't worry bout it.
