Good morning everyone !
After looking at many threads on the forum, articles on many websites and a lot of video on Youtube, I was wondering if you had kind of a "checklist" to be sure that your overall digital security is alright ?
I'm currently switching from Mac to PC and I'm taking the opportunity to make a lot of improvements regarding my personal digital security and I thought you may had some more ideas to do this right .... !
So, What I've done so far is :
-Installing Windows 10 pro and turn off some of the privacy settings that are enabled by default
-Installing bitdefender 2016
-Installing Malwarebyte (free version)
-Creating a bitlocker space for my sensible data
-Using a VPN for my computer + my smartphone (private internet acces, it slows down my connexion but I don't know what would be a good affordable alternative)
-Changing all my passwords for websites/e-mail/... accessibility in order to have a different each time (because I had one password for a lot of thing, and it's like super bad I know ... ).
-I've enabled 2-step security each time it was available.
-I've got a main hard drive + a backup drive (backed up by the windows integrated backup program) + a subscription to crashplan as a 2nd backup
-I never download/instal cracked version of games or applications
-I use adblock + HTTPS everywhere as plugins on Google Chrome
-I currently use a iPhone and I've read that they are now automatically encrypted, but since I'm considering to move to android pretty soon I think I'll need a smartphone encryption software (I guess .. ?).
SO, my main question is actually : What would you advise to do in supplement to increase my security level a bit more (if it's possible/needed) ?
I know that any system is hackable anyway (the FBI got intruders so I guess some pros could hack me pretty easily), but the goal is to have a secure computer at a "common level" and being too much of a pain in the a** for a low-mid level pirate who would want to get into my bank account/steal my private datas.
Thank you per advance,
