Why social signin is more secure

 


If you've seen those Sign In With Google/Facebook buttons, you should be using them when possible. here's why.


These signing buttons get confused with SSO (Single Sign-On) technology. Single Sign-On is not going to be discussed in this article. For information on that, look elsewhere. 


The reason social sign-on is more secure is that you are using one password for everything. Remember the more websites that you enter passwords into the more of a chance you are of being hacked. Not only that the website will only get your email if using the social sign-on option. The password you enter in Google stays in Google even when logging in with third parties. Although if the website prompts for extra permissions like access to Google Drive, then that's when it gets less secure. In that case, the social sign-in popup will show you a screen looking something like this:


If it doesn't give a second step like this, you are only giving the site your email, name, and profile photo.
On the Rototer signup and login page (Found here), we offer Google social sign-in option. We recommend using that instead of entering a password if you don't want us to have access to your password. By the way the only other time social sign-in is not as secure anymore is if the website asks for a password after authentication with google.

Are websites tracking me with ads?

As you can see,  https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/15/technology/personaltech/stop-targeted-stalker-ads.html  had a great point, but there is a solution: For Google, go into  https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated?hl=en  and make sure its toggled in this position Ad personalization is OFF There will be some websites still tracking you but that's a quick and easy solution for Google and YouTube advertisements. Unfortunately, websites will track you no matter what browser or search engine you use even if the service claims not to because their will always be cookies on the internet in order for websites to work properly.

Why you need secure passwords?

As said on   https://www.securedatarecovery.com/resources/the-importance-of-strong-secure-passwords , "Unauthorized access is a potentially major problem for anyone who uses a computer or high-tech devices such as smartphones or tablets. The consequences for victims of these break-ins can include the loss of valuable data such as presentations, emails, and music. Victims may also have their bank account information, money, or even their identity stolen. Moreover, unauthorized users may use someone else's computer to break the law, which could put the victim in legal trouble." That's why you NEVER  use your name in your password. "Did you know you never use the same password for another email" -- according to google? That's why you're "never safe than sorry"!
