I am trying to make sure all my accounts are secure from unauthorised access and have turned on all security measures that I can find to make sure my stuff is protected.

Here is what I have in place:

  • Unique password for every site (takes 6 billion years to crack) using MasterPassword since it is offline, meaning it is harder to attack
  • Enabled 2-step verification when available
  • Enabled FileValt on my Mac
  • Enabled face detection on my mac so it automatically locks when I am away from the screen or detects someone else is using my computer. To login, I need to blink to make sure someone hasn't printed out a picture of my face
  • Enabled find my iPhone so I can remotely erase my data remotely
  • I do not allow my browser to save usernames, passwords or credit cards
  • AutoFill is disabled
  • I have haveibeenpwned to alert me when it finds a service I use has its database leaked

Is there anything else that I could add to protect my accounts and data? (This includes both physical attacks and remote attacks on my MacBook Pro 2015 as well as my Internet accounts)

  • These are all really good ideas (I question the face detection, but that's an opinion), but I'm not sure that this question is a good fit for this site. It is too open-ended. For instance, I could say that you do not mention whether or not you change all your passwords every 90 days, but that's not a definitive answer. It is also not limited to accounts, but physical security of your machine, which makes it too broad.

  • @schroeder So if I take out physical security, would less broad so therefor unlocked? Also with the face detection, I know it can be insecure, however I need to blink in order for it to log me in. Also when showing a phone screen up to the camera (say for a video of me blinking) it doesn't show up that good. Also it takes a pictures of the "highjacks" so I know who they are.

  • It would still be too broad, but in terms of possible answers. The idea here is that Questions could have a definitive Answer, instead of a typical forum that encourages discussion.

  • @schroeder Thanks. Would I be able to ask for ideas then? Or what's a better way in asking this?

  • @iProgram If you want to discuss this, you might want to give Information Security Chat a try. The main site is specifically for questions that allow for a single, authoritative answer. See for example How do I ask a good question? in the help center.
