20201230 Some basic steps to ensure privacy and security
- Passwords: Never reuse any password. Use a password
manager to generate random passwords and to track your
passwords. KeePassXC is a good option. It
maintains a single encrypted store for your passwords which you can
access using a single complex master password which you must keep
secret. This does introduce a single point of failure, in that the
master password is the single key to access all of your
passwords. It is still probably the best option available.
- Multi Factor Authentication: Turn on two factor
authentication where-ever it is supported. Avoid SMS as the second
factor but if that is all that is offered, then it is better than
nothing. A good choice is an app on your personal smart device built
for the purpose.
- Software Updates: Keep both your operating system and
the software you use up to date with the latest
versions. Occasionally, but thankfully rarely, things do break when
software we rely on is updated, but the often short lived
inconvenience is worth the protection that is offered through
regular updates. Many applications will automatically update, and
that is generally a good thing.
