Stay safe in a digital world

While Keyport products are designed for utility, convenience, and style, security is also a key component. Here are a few suggestions to keeping your physical and digital items, including your identity, secure:

Password Management

1. Take password protection seriously. Don't use the same password for everything, and make sure to use longer passwords (min. 8 characters) with a combination of letters, numbers, and special characters. Here's a good article on the importance of strong, secure passwords by Secure Data Recovery as well as list of password suggestions.

Personal Identity Protection

2. DO NOT connect to public WiFi if possible. If you have to, make sure you're using a VPN like Proton VPN. Check out the Wall of Sheep, a DEF CON classic, if you want to see what can happen to your information on a public WiFi network.

Two Factor Authentication (2FA)

4. Add two-factor authentication to protect yourself from identity theft wherever you can. Use a YubiKey to protect your digital life using the industry leading two-factor authentication (2FA) security key.

Crypto & NFT Security

5. If you are into digital currency, move your crypto and NFTs to a hardware wallet. It is important to understand that if a company holding your crypto in an account goes into bankruptcy, there is a possibility that your account gets liquidated as part of the proceedings. In other words, crypto accounts are not like bank accounts which are protected by the FDIC. Storing your crypto offside in a hard wallet is a big step in protecting your assets. Just don't forget your password like this guy or lose it like this guy.

Your keys, your Bitcoin. Not your keys, not your Bitcoin. Get a crypto hardware wallet to keep your crypto and NFTs secure.
