    How secure am I?


    How secured is my Google account if I have strong password (unique to Google only), use 2-step verification Google sign-in prompt in my phone, plus Google authenticator in my phone and my phone number added too.


    I'm asking this because I decided to store my Bitwarden master password & recovery code in my google keep notes. I have written it on the paper too, but what if I lose this paper or I forget where I put that paper? I don't have good memory.


    And one more question: How secured is my bitwarden account if I use strong unique password, enabled to two step verification in my google authenticator in my phone, but also email in case I don't have access to my authenticator. Should I leave it like this or remove email option and leave only authenticator, but in that case, I if I forget my masterpassword and lose my recovery code (which I also store in my google keep notes), I will never gain access to my bitwarden account which sounds a bit scary. However to lose access to my google account and to forget and lose access to my bitwarden account sounds almost impossible.


    So, should I store my bitwarden masterpassword and recovery code in my google keep? Am I secured enough?


    And should I leave enabled email codes in bitwarden or just authenticator?

    :)

    That made me so facepalm. Some people have absolutely no clue. I hope they don't take you for granted with all this you're doing for them.

    SonicWall is a good security product, so Mindweaver's suggestion sounds like a good one and should make for a rather bigger baby step. Let's hope they take it.

    Microsoft Edge TLS Security


    After trying everything (not a lot of steps) listed in the Microsoft Edge support site, I did a wider search and found this very simple youtube video that fixed it immediately:

    For those who prefer not to click links the steps are simple:

    1. Click in the Cortana search bar next to the Win 10 Start button

    2. Type internet options

    3. Select internet options (control panel) from the list

    4. Click on the advanced tab

    5. Scroll down to the security section

    6. Make sure the following are all clicked:
    Use SSL 3.0
    Use TLS 1.0
    Use TLS 1.1
    Use TLS 1.2

    7. Click apply

    8. Refresh the page that was giving the error and it should now connect.

    Hope this helps, it was a 30 second fix after hours of pounding my head against the error with the Support site suggestions.
