    Hi. I in my email I have some folders. Is there any way I can Lock them and if anybody even gets into my account they will be asked for another password to get into my folders (in my email). Is there any email servie provider has such service?

    Like in my LG phone I can lock some folders and can only be opened with me inputting password.

    Thank you.

    The best line of defense is a strong password to your email account and maybe changing that password every six month or so.
