Podcast 002: Zoom Update and Simple Ways to Secure Your Digital World

April 20, 2020

Ally and I have a new podcast up, this week we're talking about Zoom, social media quizzes, and how to secure your digital world.  It is up on Spotify and Apple Podcast, or you can listen to it here.  

 

 

  • Secure your passwords - use long, complex passwords (like Isawtheelephantdrivingdownthestreet) - it's something completely random, long and complex, but easy to remember.  
  • Get a password manager - do you research to know which one works best for your situation but options like LastPass or Dashlane. 
  • Enable two-factor authentication for any account that supports it 
    • Authenticator is a good app that you can use to generate your two-factor that is supported by GitHub and Facebook for example 
  • Anti-virus like McAfee 
  • Turn your built-in Firewall on 
  • Change your SSID and make sure you have a strong password for your WiFi.  
  • Make sure you keep everything patched and updated 
  • Use a secure messaging app - Signal, Wire, etc.  
  • Be mindful of the apps you install 
  • Don't click links in emails, text messages, social media 
  • Think about encrypting your laptop/computer  
  • Use a VPN - Proton,  Nord, PIA
  • Secure Email - Protonmail
  • Use your phone's data instead of a public WiFi network 
  •
