If you’re not doing this with all your accounts, you’re doing it wrong

If you’re not using a password manager and two-step authentication, you’re most likely doing things wrong.*

This 4-minute video may change your life. Or at least convince you that strong passwords and two-factor authentication are a must.

Oh, wait. You already use a password manager? You already have 2FA on all your accounts? Great. But chances are you know someone who doesn’t. And you have got to share this video with them. We’re to the point that these basic security measures are a must. (Don’t believe me? Ask this guy.)

Some MUST-HAVE links that go along with this little rant:

  • Password managers if you’re on Android
  • Password managers if you’re on iOS
  • Sites and services with two-factor auth

Repeat: Strong, unique passwords and two-factor authorization are two of the most important things you can do online.

Subscribing to Modern Dad is a third. You can do that here!!!


Unless you’re one of those people who has a crazy sort of brain that can do a one-time password sort of thing mentally. In which case remind me to buy you a beer and never ask how you do such a thing.
