Online Privacy | Microsoft Safety and Security Center. My last post about keeping your Windows 10 machine secure is highlighted by my own device settings. As always, you need to set a strong password. But, you also need to set up two step authentication, so that someone trying to get into your account will be stopped even if they know your password. As an example, here is a screen grab of my page, showing attempts to get into my account from the Ukraine, China and other countries. If you think you are immune from hacking attempts, you are wrong. It isn't even about whether you have any secret information on your system. It is about gaining control of your system and using it for nefarious purposes. Get safe out there.
