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.
In my first article regarding increasing online security for normal people, I covered LastPass. Then in my second article I covered how to use a hardware dongle for Two Factor Authentication (2FA). I also use Google Authenticator for 2FA, which is an app that generates time sensitive security codes.
One of the things I care a lot about when it comes to online information is the news. Freedom of speech is a great thing, however it does put some responsibility back at the readers, who then also need to get skills in validating sources.
