Security 258 – WhatsApp Privacy

YouTube Poster

We look at Apple’s new “Nutrition Facts” and try to figure out if they are actually useful (yes, but not really). We discuss the changes with WhatsApp, and where to move to.

Security 242- Ubiquiti’s Dream Machine

I decided to relearn everything about networking, and got myself a Ubiquiti Dream Machine. I share my experiences.

I really do like it. There are a ton of features, I didn’t know I needed. However, there are some quirks, like non standard feature naming practices.

Security 241 – Bitwarden

Bitwarden is a “new to us” password manager. We discuss it, and recommend the software. We still recommend LastPass as well, however, if you want a better free option, and cheaper premium options, Bitwarden is worth a look.

Chaim dives into the tech support implementation for friends and family. The design makes it easy to navigate. It was easy to switch, and I feel comfortable troubleshooting it from afar.

Tom went into the deep end with the self hosting aspect. He has some issues on how self hosting should not command a premium subscription, but overall he gives it a thumbs up.
