Using a password manager and 2FA is just the tip of the iceberg.
Check out this great list from @brian_lovin@twitter.com and make sure to tick all TODOs. It will take some time but it's worth. The future is not getting more secure if you don't take ownership. securitycheckli.st

@dvg it's becoming more and more paranoic each year as far as I can see...

@barszczyk Well but every year it's becoming easier to get hacked...

@dvg
The list is ibtersting, but for me it causes more harm than good.
The guy speaks about security&privacy and has links to share on Twitter and Facebook.
Not to forget that he suggests bad things like Google Authenticator

@jlhertel Well it is intended for beginners. Facebook is clearly a nogo but f.ex Google Authenticator is better than nothing. Everyone has to start with something.

@dvg
Yes, but if you start with the wrong option you are not improving anything, just giving the fake security impression.
It would be much nice if the guy at least explains that the suggested tools are also bad and that there are better options.
Eg: Google auth can easily be replaced with FreeOTP+

@jlhertel
Yeah, but I am not sure if people then get caught in parálisis by analysis and actually do nothing. In most cases doing something is better than doing nothing.
