Gmail is one of the most used Google services. And it is also very much prone to hacking a recent example was Chinese Hackers hacking Gmail Accounts. Although few things are beyond our control there are still many things which we can do to use Gmail more securely.

Below is a detailed compilation of security measures one can take to use Gmail in a more secure way.
  1. Watch out for messages that ask for your username and/or password. Gmail will never ask for this information.
  2. Never give out your password after following a link sent to you in a message, even if it looks like Gmail's sign-in page. 
  3. Access Gmail directly by typing https://mail.google.com in your browser's address bar.
  4. Don’t share your password with other websites - Google can’t guarantee the security of other websites and your Gmail password could be compromised.
  5. Keep secrets! Never tell anyone your password, or your secret question and answer; if you do tell someone, change it as soon as possible.
  6. Clear forms, passwords, cache and cookies in your browser on a regular basis - especially on a public computer. Also read: How to choose a strong password for Gmail?
