SECURITY Home Computer Security http://edu-observatory.org/olli/HCS/index.html Basic security primmer Updates -- Keep everything updated. Passwords -- Use a password manager. Connecting -- Use a secure internet connection and/or a VPN. Privacy -- Block Trackers, Do not give away information. Phishing -- Do not respond to Phishing. Ignore. Delete. Backups -- Backup so that nothing can be lost. LAN -- Take responsibility for things on the internet. Keeping your software up2date is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your Apple product's security. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201222 ⓵ CHECK IF YOUR PASSWORD HAS BEEN COMPROMISED IN A DATA BREACH https://haveibeenpwned.com https://haveibeenpwned.com/Passwords If your password has been detected in any of these breached sites -- make sure you login to your account and change the password. Every password should be unique, 16-20+ characters, randomly generated, and stored in a password manager. ⓶ CHECK THE INTEGRITY OF YOUR PASSWORDS ON YOUR APPLE DEVICES https://support.apple.com/guide/security/password-monitoring-sec78e79fc3b/web Goto (System) Settings > Passwords > Security Recommendations iPhone/iPad/Mac can securely monitor your passwords and alert you if they are weak or appear in known date leaks. Make sure you login to your account and change the flagged password(s). Every password should be unique, 16-20+ characters, randomly generated, and stored in a password manager. ⓷ USE PASSKEYS INSTEAD OF PASSWORDS https://support.apple.com/en-us/102195 Passkeys reside on your device, not anywhere else. Passkeys are a replacement for passwords that are designed to provide websites and apps a passwordless sign-in experience that is both more convenient and more secure. Passkeys are a standard-based technology that, unlike passwords, are resistant to phishing, are always strong, and are designed so that there are no shared secrets. They simplify account registration for apps and websites, are easy to use, and work across all of your Apple devices, and even non-Apple devices within physical proximity. Passkeys are built on the WebAuthentication (or "WebAuthn") standard, which uses public key cryptography. During account registration, the operating system creates a unique cryptographic key pair to associate with an account for the app or website. These keys are generated by the device, securely and uniquely, for every account. One of these keys is public, and is stored on the server. This public key is not a secret. The other key is private, and is what is needed to actually sign in. The server never learns what the private key is. On Apple devices with Touch ID or Face ID available, they can be used to authorize use of the passkey, which then authenticates the user to the app or website. No shared secret is transmitted, and the server does not need to protect the public key. This makes passkeys very strong, easy to use credentials that are highly phishing-resistant. And platform vendors have worked together within the FIDO Alliance to make sure that passkey implementations are compatible cross-platform and can work on as many devices as possible.
