Re: Zoom releases 5.0 update with security and privacy improvements

I’m glad Zoom is continuing to improve things:

Zoom is clearly responding quickly to the issues that have been raised, just as it has seen an influx of millions of new users using its service during the novel coronavirus pandemic. Zoom reported a maximum of 10 million daily users back in December, but this skyrocketed to more than 200 million daily meeting participants in March. There are still more issues to address and improvements required, but 20 days after Zoom CEO Eric S. Yuan promised changes, we’re now starting to see exactly how Zoom is responding.

Re: Zoom announces 90-day feature freeze to fix privacy and security issues

Does anybody actually feel good about the fact that they’re just now concentrating on privacy and security? They have made way too many security “mistakes” for this to matter now.

Re: Android malware can steal Google Authenticator 2FA codes | ZDNet

I recommend using a password manager and doing 2FA through that. I’ve been using 1Password for a while and recently switched to using it instead of Authy for all my 2FA accounts. I think most of the popular password managers should support this.

Some password managers to consider:
