Computer Security

Some thoughts about potential options to secure your computer

  1. setup 2 step authorizations (eg: google can send a pin to your phone, or banks have pin generator for a second password)
  2. isolating threats. ie: when paying with a credit card, you could
    1. use a VM
    2. use Tor
    3. dual boot to a separate OS
    4. setup a computer and remote access into it
  3. software: firewall, regular virus scans, regular spyware scans
  4. monitors: monitor network traffic here
  5. reformat your actual computer periodically
