Okay so, I was getting sick of my internet accounts getting hacked for the umpteenth time in a row. Since 1991 or so (Or whenever the internet came out I was a child when it did so I don't 100% remember the year) my internet accounts have probably been hacked well over several hundred times. About a year ago my Spotify account was hacked and I got my account back the same day, but the sneaky little piece of crap made me pay for a family plan and got free spotify premium for over a year before my wife went through our credit card statment and wondered why Spotify was charging us $15 instead of $10. So I went onto my Spotify account and sure enough I was paying for a family plan and he had several accounts linked to the family plan and not just one. He probably sold the extra accounts and other people got free Spotify for a year +. Yes, I'm stupid and I don't really pay attention to whats being charged on my credit cards I just pay the balance because usually there's always $300+ worth of charges a month on my credit cards so I don't notice the extra charge going through. Giving a hacker over $400 worth of free service convinced me that it was time to increase my security on the internet.
Before you ask, no my computer isn't infected with malware anymore so the hackers didn't steal the passwords from my computers . I stopped being infected with malware after I got a lifetime subscription to zemana anti malware for my wife and I. Since then we've been mostly malware free.
So after the spotify incident I said screw it I'm sick of hackers getting into my accounts and potentially getting free money out of me so I purchased a yearly subscription to Dashlane and made 30+ Character passwords as each site would allow for my accounts. Since then, I haven't been hacked once on ANY of my 50+ online accounts (I have accounts for pretty much everything). It was a massive improvement from before because other times I was hacked probably every 3-4 months or so on average from anything to my Paypal account to my facebook to... anything really. It was ridiculous.
I'm considering switching to your service because you're cheaper than and seemingly have better customer support on top of that. I was wondering, why should I go with your service over Dashlane besides the lower cost? What benefits do you have over the other company? I skimmed your purchase page and you seemingly pretty much have just as much as I'm currently paying $9.99 a month for from dashlane (Their pro option I believe).
I was considering getting a 2nd or maybe multi layer form of authentication since passwords are starting to die the way of the dodo and I've heard there are much better forms of security out there now. I've heard of fingerprint scanners that exist for desktops and the yubikey 5. It's very desirable to me. But I have several questions about this layer of security if maybe you can answer them, otherwise I might just ask Yubikey themselves (their support is a little annoying to go through so I'd rather ask people who know about internet security) 1. Do you need more than one key to secure multiple computers/devices? I got my wife interested in security too. She doesn't use a password manager and refuses to but I've convinced her to remember 20+ character passwords to help secure her online accounts because she has a lot of them too. So do I have to buy my wife a yubikey as well or do they work across multiple devices?
My other question is do most online websites support YubiKey now or do only a few of them? Also the main question, Would YubiKey be right for me or should I get a fingerprint scanner or something of the ilk? What would be the most secure method of securing my wife and I's privacy online and prevent hackers from stealing our money and information? I'm pretty new to what's available today in terms of security so any advice would help. I would also like to secure our computers themselves. We use Windows 10 Pro. I see there's multiple forms of authentication that secure Windows, again which would be best for me? Thanks in advance!
