In this week's episode, it's time to wrap up 2023 with another look at Privacy.com, and my strategies for avoiding bank account lockout. I delve into the CIA Triad, breaking down its relevance to everyday privacy concerns. The episode also takes a practical turn with a guide on using FindMyDevice on GrapheneOS, and the FindMyDevice feature on the Garmin Instinct 2 watch for tracking lost phones.

I also tackle the debate between biometric authentication and passcodes, taking our threat model into consideration. For those interested in storage synchronization solutions, I discuss using Nextcloud for a variety of purposes, including photo backups, syncing Keepass, and markdown notes, highlighting its versatility for privacy.

Join me for an episode packed with valuable insights and tips for enhancing your digital privacy and security as we welcome in 2024!
