Hacker Career Advice

Holiday Tech Support

Headed home for the holidays? Prepare for unavoidable questions like “Can you fix my computer / phone / toaster?”, “Should I buy a Bitcoin?”, and “What does Switzerland have to do with my Internet?”

And then, once you’ve finished rolling your eyes, teach your family how to use a password manager, two-factor authentication (No SMS!), HaveIBeenPwned alerts, and how to identify & deal with ransomware.

It may be a frustrating conversation, but dealing with ransomeware & identity theft is way worse. I can speak from experience.
