Gmail isn't scanning for ads in either regular or G Suite versions, and I assume that "Business email powered by G Suite" has the exact same privacy policies as regular G Suite. Hard to tell. There...

That looks like a college-managed Google account. I would just ask your college IT folks or ask around the dorms. You probably can just use a friend's number if you want to, and then after you have...

The problem isn't password guessing or brute force attacks. Most account hacking is due to phishing and stolen passwords. Without 2FA it doesn't matter how strong your password is if they have it. I...
