As the household IT/tech guy in my family, I’ve spent a fair amount of time educating my parents on good security practices like using strong passwords, ignoring requests for personal information via email or phone, and updating your software regularly. Believe it or not, I was able to convince my father to set up two-factor authentication for his Google account! You see, miracles are possible.
Awhile back, I clicked a link in a tweet from my Twitter timeline. No big deal, right? Unbeknownst to me, I had just clicked an infected link aimed at stealing my Twitter credentials. Upon clicking the link, my page reloaded and I was sent back to what had appeared to be the login screen on the Twitter homepage.
