Many of these providers now have a regular security update and I just got one from Github. So if you use it and have sensitive code up there, here are the things to do by browsing to the Github security page. https://github.com/settings/security
- Authentication recovery. They have a new place where you can connect your Facebook identification. It just helps verify that it is you.
- Two factor authentication methods. You can now add recovery codes and also an SMS address, but the most secure is a two factor application like Authy.
- Then there are backup methods. For instance, you can SMS as a backup.
- Make sure to also get recovery codes and store them somewhere safe. Like a 1Password vault
You’ve been warned 🙂
