Over the past few years I care more and more about my online security.
I’m using 1Password since 08/2013 and I’ve a bit more than 350 items saved. Account Logins, WiFi Passwords, Important notes and so on.
I read a lot of blogs, mostly linked via Twitter, and about two years ago, I read about 2FA. At this time, 1P did’t support them and just a very few online service did. But it didn’t take too long and 1Password implemented it.
I didn’t use 2FA immediately with every account. Every time when i logged in into a service and thought about 2FA, i set it up – and felt quite a bit more secured.
Til today, I’m able to use 2FA with only ten(!) accounts. This is really a bit sad.
There is one big exception: my Google Login. I’ve used 2FA for a long time but then I switched to Login with your Smartphone and till today i’m quite impressed how good it works.
Two days ago in the evening someone in my twitter timeline posted a Keybase verification. I’ve read about this service a few times in the past but forgot about it after closing the page.
But not yesterday. I created an Keybase account and verified my website and github and added my MacBook and iPhone as trusted devices.
On the next day, i talked about this service with a workmate and he explained me a bit. He showed me his usage of PGP and i was infected.
Yesterday in the evening I ordered a Yubikey and rectified a big 1Password usage fail: I’ve never thought about it how pointless it is to save the password and 2FA Code in the same place. So i downloaded Authy, set it up and deleted every 2FA from 1P. So, my password is still saved in 1Password but my 2FA Login is saved in Authy.
I hope my Yubikey will arrive this coming week and i’ll „play“ a bit with it. If you have some recommendations let me hear them.
Let’s see how good i can integrate the improved security with everyday life. I’ll keep posting.
