First of all, I hope this is the right stackexchange to ask this. Seems to be most relevant here.
Now, if one is planning to go overseas and he/she has a lot of data on the email account (say, gmail) that needs to be protected, what security considerations need to be taken care of?
I mean, I'm thinking of making a second gmail account, forward everything to the gmail account while not accessing the former at all.
Is there anything else I'm missing?
