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.
