Which is more secure yahoo or gmail? Are email client apps safer than the stock app?
Depends more on the strength of your password than anything else
So one might have to constantly change their password?
Not if you start with a strong password to begin with and don't share it with anyone
Email is safe from "hacks" as in a server side intrusion.
99.9% of email privacy problems are when the account is compromised due to a weak or shared password. Using the same password to sign up for a less reputable forum that you use for your primary email account.
Ideally, what I do is have multiple email addresses for different purposes. Banking, family and friends, gaming, forums, etc. Each has a unique email account that I aggregate either via forwards or aliases.
Using GMail, you have the option to turn on 2-step verification. Once you login using a computer you never used before, you'll get a text message on your phone with a code you need to enter in order to login. Each app will have a different password given by Google as well. If you're worried about security, I'd go with that option.
