You need three things to secure your online accounts:
0) Password manager to generate strong and unique passwords
1) Second-factor authentication - the best option is NitroKey Fido or YubiKey, followed by USB or app-based 2FA one-time-passwords.
2) Good OPSEC - or operations security - without it, no tool can save you.
