Wannacrypt ransomware info links

Right, there are a lot of information pages out there regarding the Wannacrypt Malware/Ransomware going around right now, so I’m creating this page just to save off some links for future reference for myself (so I can close a bunch of browser tabs), but if you find something new on here: good.

iCloud – How To Enable Two Factor Verification

Right, iCloud and Apple and my friend being socially hacked out of his Apple account was actually what prompted me to write this series of posts regarding enabling Two Factor Authentication wherever you can, whenever you can.

Just like the Dropbox instructions though, Apple has done a pretty good job of documenting it all, both in how it works and how you go about changing things, yourself. It would be silly of me to re-hash it here, and much more logical to send you to the correct Apple information page about it.

Therefore I figured I should do a similar write-up like I did regarding Facebook, with images and instructions on how you should enable Two Factor Authentication on Dropbox, or actually, Two-Step Verification as they call it. However, I found they, unlike many others, actually have done a great job on their instructions and information themselves. It would be silly if I just re-hashed it here.

Facebook – How To Enable Two Factor Authentication

Right, Facebook. The one and only, which 2 billion or so people (ok, 1.86 billion) have a love/hate relationship with, or in Facebook lingo: it is complicated. I guess I could write articles on if you should be using Facebook at all, along with any of the big name services out there (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft etc), but as I say, that is probably another set of articles altogether, concerning privacy etc. For now we can concentrate on the fact that many people around the globe indeed are using it, and far too few have bothered with setting it up in a way that is secure enough. Come to think of it, I probably will write another article on how to sort out the settings for privacy as well, later, but for now, let’s concentrate on enabling Two Factor Authentication within Facebook.
