General security considerations

Casa's mission is to protect our members from any and all risk to their funds, starting with good security practices.

The following security practices are recommend for any Casa member who is concerned about their security and privacy.

Use a password manager
Casa recommends either 1Password or Bitwarden. Make sure you set it up on both mobile and desktop!

Consider a VPN
We like Nord and Proton, but there are a number of good options available.

Enable 2FA everywhere you can

We are big fans of YubiKeys, but Google Authenticator is a good option as well. Do NOT use your phone number, as this leaves you vulnerable to SIM-swap attacks.

Prevent SIM-swap attacks
Contact your wireless carrier and ask them to secure your account against transfer with a separate PIN or passphrase.

Keep your operating systems updated
All the major operating system developers dedicate tremendous resources to finding and fixing vulnerabilities. Make sure you update your Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, and/or Android devices frequently.
