One more - Use 2fa (not SMS based), especially where password restrictions make strong passwords painful...

Yeah, that’s true. I use the Google Authenticator app for a few things but I hardly ever get asked for it so it didn’t seem like a big deal in my life. But yeah:

Authenticator app for the big service providers would be a good idea. Using it for your mail provider is specially important as mail is the universal password reset mechanism these days.

Now that I’ve seen Christina’s list, let me see whether I can find things that are easy to improve upon.

Looking at all the points where I failed, which one would be the easiest to fix. I guess getting rid of Gmail and moving to Protonmail? Or a better browser setup, I guess?
