There are two takeaways from CloudFlare‘s (wikipedia.org) recent security breach that are outstanding pieces of actionable information.
Ensure your password on your email account is extremely strong and not used on any other services…
…using an out-of-band authentication that doesn’t rely on the phone company’s network (e.g., Google Authenticator App, not SMS or voice verification).
If you already have two-factor authentication (wikipedia.org) turned on for your Gmail or Google Aps account, you likely have a cell phone number or a landline number in use. It’s really easy to remove the number once you are using the Google Authenticator (wikipedia.org) app. If you have a rooted phone like me, and enjoy reflashing your phone to try out new roms or mods, be sure to deactivate two-factor authentication before you purge your apps!
If you aren’t using two-factor authentication… may the internet gods be with you XD
