This video gives a decent introduction into why you should secure your devices and digital accounts. Pay special attention to your personal email account. It is the most crucial account to secure as tightly as possible because it is the gateway to all your other accounts.
- Buy products with security built-in. Make sure your software is updated regularly.
- Use a password manager. I recommend Bitwarden, which is free and works across Windows, Mac, iPhone and Android.
- Use Second Factor Authentication (2FA). Turn this on for all your important accounts, especially email and financial services. And don’t use SMS to receive the codes if you can help it.
