For Valentine’s Day, I wanted to share WIRED’s informative article on major apps and systems that will let you share content without sharing your password via “family” or sharing accounts, but will still let you keep your profiles separate. The article shares tips on Apple, Amazon, Spotify, Google Play Music, Rhapsody, NYTimes, X-Box, Playstation but unfortunately not Netflix – yet.
“..passwords are already one of the least secure protections we have available to us. There’s every chance you’re bad at them to begin with, and the more people who have the key to your alphanumerical digital lock, the more potentially exposed you become. If your shared Netflix password also happens to be your banking password, and your significant other gets hacked, you’re suddenly in a heap of trouble as well.”
If you made it to last month’s webinar on IT Security Threats to Nonprofits, you already know how to deal with passwords. If you missed it, you can check out the slides and recording for that and more scary stuff.
Don’t miss our webinar this Thursday on Backups and Disaster Recovery – just in case love does go wrong, and you need to reboot!
