Internet Security 4 n00bs

Death. Taxes. Social networks getting hacked—some things are unavoidable. But, if you take the proper security precautions, you can limit the damage and keep yourself safe:

First off, use a password manager. I recommend LastPass because it integrates with all your devices, generates secure passwords, and you never have to remember or type in individual passwords ever again. Also, it’s free.

Next, go to Have I been pwned? to check if any of your accounts have been compromised recently. And if so, use the LastPass 1-click password changer to update them.

Oh, and you are using two-factor authentication, right?
