  • Get off social media

    I stopped using Facebook a while ago. Only deactivated as I have to reactivate it briefly once in a while.

    I'm guessing LinkedIn is ok? I don't use it much its just there as a presence.

    I use Twitter too but not with my name or a photo of me. Is that ok?

  • I already have MFA configured on everything I can, but mostly using push notifications/Google Authenticator. Google gave me a $100 voucher when I got my Pixel 3A from them and there's nothing on their site I need, so I thought I'd get a Titan Security Key. It came with a USB key and also an NFC/Bluetooth one.

    I auth through almost all work things via Okta, so being protected by Okta MFA to get into 20+ different services with a single piece of hardware as my second factor is actually very good. Every time one opens Okta's Admin Panel you now have to authenticate via MFA and the session timeout is less than 10 minutes, so having the key plugged in removes that step about 20 times a day. Most helpful.

  • Looks like Lastpass has tripled in price from $12 to $36 per year. Think that could be enough to push me to another option.

  • Bitwarden is nice :)

  • More thoughts on Garmin privacy - You can use whichever device you have in an offline capacity, and manually take the .fit / .tcx /.whatever files off the device, and anlyse them on your local machine using something like Golden Cheetah.

  • Also, more thoughts on Xprivacy.

    Reading around a bit, it appears that Xprivacy (rather the latest iteration, XprivacyLUA) is actually a bit rubbish, and not only doesn't block things (it *claims* to provide fake data instead), it only does for a subset of identifiers, at the whim of the developer.

    In the absence of any alternative, however, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • This is what I've done for years, using WKO3. I never enable WIFI or BT on it. Less about security and more about battery life.

  • +1 for Bitwarden

    What's the thing with Bitwarden.
    Is it really completely free as they claim?

  • Bitwarden synology friendly?

  • Is it really completely free as they claim?

    The core feature set is free. For personal accounts, there are extras like extra storage, automated checks against the various have-I-been-pwned databases and FIDO U2F support (for logging into your Bitwarden account) in the paid service ($10/year atm).
