1/Are you doing enough to SECURE your Virtual self?
Here's some more suggestions
Summon your inner OCD

#GeeksResist w/precision
2/I work in IS for a Hospital system
I protect patient/employee data professionally
The best protections still have flaws
Minimize your risk
3/Lets break down this great list
4/See if you are ALREADY compromised by checking a HUGE DB of known USERNAME data - if it's here bots have a PW
5/Enable Multifactor auth/verification EVERYWHERE u can
Here's Twitter instruction
6/2factor authentication helps &
Avoid password reuse
Its annoying, but FUNIMATION - the anime cartoon portal - was hacked
7/If your favorite username and password was on FUNIMATION
now hackers have it
All your base belongs to them

Get a password manager
8/Password managers create random hard PWs everywhere & you just need to remember 1 REALLY HARD PW
I suggest:
9/The password manager will do all the hard work
But you still need an un-hackable pass
Here's a guide
10/✔️ur social media security
I suggest u only allow the BARE min
Don’t compromise ur friends by sharing contacts
Zynga (you know - Words w/Friends, Farmville, etc)
Yeah, Russian owned
U gave them your data willingly
12/Clean up ur followers EVERYWHERE
Yes #FollowBack is great
It builds #TheResistance
But BOTS r everywhere
Make sure u know who follows u
13/Just block the flippin BOTS/TROLLS/ALIASES
They only want to distract & gather intel
It’s a job for most & a game for the rest
14/Known followers can compromise YOU
Not everyone follows good practices
A friend might share compromising info
Like - Your PET'S NAME

All security questions
Ditch those things if u can
Sec. Q's compromise best practice
16/Use phone or email recovery ONLY
Or HARD answers if u must use Sec Qs

PW Manager; a LONG PIN on ur phone
12+ characters & NO FINGERPRINT
17/YES 12 characters or MORE
Use your fav 3or4 4-character pins all at once
To secure YOU, 15 sec is worth it

Convenience KILLS security
It is the key to all
It is the PRECIOUS
19/But also BACKUP to the CLOUD
Reputable One- Google, Microsoft, etc.

Office 365 from MS is $100 yearly for 5TB
1TB per 5 family "members"
20/Use your password manager for that backup
Security has to be everywhere
21/Get a good Malware protection
NOT only/just virus protection
Viruses are so 2000s
Visiting websites is what will get ya
It’s the Ads
22/We all have that site we go to
Maybe movie streaming
Maybe memes
Maybe porn
Maybe "fake coupon" sharing
I don’t care
The Ads will get u
23/I suggest malwarebytes.org
It stops sites w/malware
Protects from things most virus protection won't
It works on Mobile
If it looks "odd" don't click it
Type it yourself
Google it
Or just don’t browse
25/I don’t get anything from the sites I mentioned
I'm just sharing what works for me
Sharing what is good practice
You decide
26/That’s the point right now

YOU decide
Think and protect your REAL self now

So the BOTS/trolls/aliases/Jerrys don’t get you
27/Don't wait
Hackers have your info NOW
Protect yourself

#IBelive in the kindness that is Humanity
Be safe; protect your loved ones

Check ur PHONE acct
Make sure a NEW ID pin has been set
By default the pin is the last 4 of ur SSN

Change that NOW or "they" will
