In this "Basics Of Bitcoin" guide I outline exactly how to not be victimized by this sort of thing by following a few, very easy security protocols or what I call "crypto hygiene".

Apparently, there is a vulnerability that allowed hackers to bypass Coinbase’s multi-factor authentication SMS option has affected at least 6,000 of the exchange’s customers, according to a notification letter sent to affected customers that the company has filed with the California state attorney general offices.

Here's how to safely avoid being hacked:

Use a Password Manager - Dashlane https://fxo.co/1135570/zerodebtcoach 

Never keep your tokens on an exchange: Ledger Nano https://shop.ledger.com/products/crypto-starter-pack?r=e6c9f409bf64

Use hardware-based 2FA instead of SMS or Google Authenticator or Authy on your smartphone: Yubico - https://www.gopjn.com/t/SkNJTk5MTklDSElMTEpOQ0dPR0tNSw

Use a VPN: Nord VPN - https://go.nordvpn.net/aff_c?offer_id=15&aff_id=35814

Using these tips, set up a Coinbase account to purchase crypto and them pull them off asap into your Ledger Nano (listed above) - https://www.coinbase.com/join/bradlongmusic
