或许,这世间一切的好往往都是求之不得的吧。有心栽花花不发,无心插柳柳成荫;有心栽柳柳不成荫,无意种花花却繁华。

使用二步验证,一定要备份好16-Digit Key,切记!


互联网的时代里,网络安全非常的重要,尤其是涉及到资金等重要信息的网站,现在很多规模比较大的网站都提供二步验证这一途径,比如在我们的Steemit圈里,提现资金相关的网站比如localbitcoinsbittrexpoloniexpayoneer银行卡virwox等都支持二步验证,这就进一步增强了我们的信息和资金安全了。

作为一个小白,我们并不需要深入了解二步验证的技术,但是需要非常注意的是,一定要备份好第一次二步验证时候的信息,比如16-Digit Key这个密钥。
因为我们一般都会在手机上下载Google身份验证器用来使用二步验证,但是小白们往往在使用的时候忘记了备份16-Digit Key等信息,一旦我们不小心卸载了身份验证软件或者换新手机了(比如我就卸载了,幸亏有备份密钥),那么我们将没有办法登陆开启了二步验证的网站,这样的话会非常的麻烦,即使是谷歌也没有办法帮我们恢复密钥,甚至我们就永远登陆不上这些网站,我们的资金就永远留在这些网站。

所以,使用二步验证一定要备份好16-Digit Key等相关信息!
我的做法是在开启二步验证的时候,自己给自己发一封备份信息的邮件,然后打上标签。

另外,二步验证软件其实有很多种,Google身份验证只是其中一个,给大家推荐一下其它比较有名的二步验证软件,你可以在手机上做一个实验,同时安装好几个两步软件,然后输入同一个密钥,那么我们将会得到同一个二步验证码,我已经实验过了。

其它好用的两步验证软件:
微软microsoft authenticator
lastpass authenticator
authy
1password authenticator

2018, recommended best-paid VPNs which perfectly work in China and other places

Adam Smith's theory of division of labor tells us: for areas where you are not good at, such as the VPNs, let professional people do it for you.

~~~
Hello, friends here.
Are you going to China (or other countries with cyber censorship)? you are recommended to prepare a VPN service firstly before you go, no matter what you are planning to do in China: working, studying, business or traveling.

Why? Let me tell you some reasons:
. the first reason is that you can not visit many useful websites in China, such as Google, Gmail, youtube, GitHub, Twitter, Instagram and even your government websites, too many websites that I cannot list all are blocked by China.
Do you know that there are two great walls in China, the Great Wall and the Great Fire Wall (GFW), The Great Wall was designed to defend the invasion of nomadic people. The GFW is simply to protect foreigners out of China, hope you can understand ;)

Most Chinese uses baidu.com to search online, but let me tell you that Baidu just is a rubbish compared to Google.

. do you care your online privacy? this is not about China but all the world, that companies or governments are collecting your personal information without your notification, because they just want to know more about you so that they can make more money from you, by selling your products/services, or by cheating you.

a good VPN can greatly improve your privacy and security online, reducing your information being collected, never believe that some VPNs providers claim that they can make you anonymous because nothing will be absolutely anonymous on the web.
Internet censorship is a worldwide government behavior, not only in China, but especially in China, it exists everywhere on this planet~Asia, Europe, America and Africa, not including Antarctica. image via Wikipedia.

. Then how about using free VPN?
No, free VPN is not recommended!

Because free is the most expensive on this planet, there is no such thing as a free lunch! The free VPNs usually are not stable and speed slow, so you have to spend a lot of time and effort on searching free VPNs.
On the other hand, the free VPN providers perhaps will collect your information, and sell it to a third party, for money, who knows?

Yes, if you need a VPN, go to buy one.
One simple principle: when you are choosing to buy a paid VPN, choose the one with a good brand, no matter where you are, China or other places.
here is my answer to recommend somebody not use opera VPN: well, let me tell you that opera firstly is a web browser company, you know what I mean :)
if you want to buy a VPN, why not buy a professional one with a better brand?

2018, the top 3 best-paid VPNs (in China and the world), with price discounts register via this page, each of them works perfectly at all the platforms, such as android, ios and windows devices, try to use the VPN you buy in the first days, if you are not satisfied, you can ask for them to give your money back.
