I Make Things Work

Sane shit, different mane

I found this as a Facebook post under "today a previous year" or whatever it is called. As my opinion on this hasn't changed, and it still is a problem, I figured I should publish the text here instead of having it locked in on Facebook.

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.

Following the article on LastPass password manager I mentioned I am using Two Factor Authentication in a couple of ways. One of those ways is via a physical device called Yubikey, which I have on my physical key chain at all times.

Recently a friend of mine had his iCloud account hacked. If you are unsure of what the implications of that could be I urge you to go and have a read of this article, written by Mat Honan.
