It’s up to each of us to take proactive measures to protect our information when the inevitable happens and companies that house our data experience breaches. Although we’re powerless to prevent these breaches, that doesn’t mean we can’t mitigate the harm that we personally experience as a result of them. That’s where smart password creation and management comes in.
Recent advances in biometric technology have now made it possible to cheaply and effectively authenticate individuals based on the unique way that sound is conducted by their skulls.
While no evidence of abuse has currently been found, at least 2,000 Facebook employees searched through the files containing passwords, though it’s not clear as to why.
While multi-factor authentication (MFA) has become increasingly common, not all 2FA is created equal.
Epic third-party breaches may be unavoidable, but by taking the proper password precautions, before and after, you can greatly mitigate potential damages.
