If you log in to your email on public computers and you have a gmail
account, I would strongly recommend you use "2-step verification". Look
here: http://support.google.com/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=180744

You can use it with a smartphone, text messages, or you can print out
1-time passwords and stick them in your wallet.
