Hello! Lets have a look at a few ways for making your data safer.πŸ”’

  1. Encrypt and password protect your hard drive
  2. Use Two-Factor Authentication
  3. (Automatically) backup your data and encrypt it
  4. Set a screen lock after e.g. 5 minutes
  5. Use a password manager (e.g. Bitwarden) so you can use difficult to memorize passwords
  6. On the road: if needed, there are privacy filters for Laptops which you can place on them so you only see whats on the screen from a certain angle
  7. If you cant avoid using public WLAN, use a VPN (Virtual private network, e.g. ProtonVPN)

Which security tips do you want to share? Have a nice weekend. :)
