Backup codes!

Hello World!

Building on my misconfiguration of security keys, I had to use a backup code for the first time ever today. I cannot stress enough the importance of these codes for your accounts that have multi-factor authentication. Write them down and keep them in a safe place, they could really save your skin.

Especially when we think that people could have phones stolen, having those backup codes gives you peace of mind that no matter what, you have a way of getting back into your accounts. I just wanted to mention this, as it’s my first experience of getting locked out an account. Well… getting locked out and it being of my own doing.

I’m currently attending MITRE ATT&CKcon and enjoying the speakers very much, I might write about some stuff I have learned. However my priority right now is sticking to my plan for the content here on my site and meeting deadlines, so I’m really not keen to add much stuff to my to-do list right now.
