Risks of choosing yes for remembering password for iPads, iPhones not having iCloud Keychain

Our mobile devices(iPhones, iPads) don’t have iCloud Keychain which seems to have AES 256 bit encryption for storing credentials. The mobile browsers in those devices like Safari, Firefox, Chrome ask users if they want to save their Office 365 email password which is used to login to their desktop devices. I know if the phone, tablet is lost anyone who hacks their phone/tablet passcode can view their passwords.

Users want to choose yes so they don’t have to remember the password, but from a security viewpoint if those passwords are stored by the browsers a rogue plugin/extension in the browsers could send it to another place. There is also risk of password breach if the mobile devices are lost.

A. If a user chooses yes to remember his password in a iPhone/iPad on a mobile browser like Safari, Chrome, Firefox, where does the browser store it and how safe is it?

B. How to convince management to not bow to user’s convenience of remembering passwords in the browser?

C. Can asking users to use a free password manager like KeePass so it remembers the password instead of the browser better from a security viewpoint?

D. Any other suggestions for a situation where we can accommodate user convenience but not risk losing enterprise credentials for an employee who lost his iPhone?

Help choosing a feat for level 4 Swashbuckler

Ok so it seems like a simple question but I’m very new to dnd.

I’m playing as a High Elf Swashbuckler and his stats are:

Str: 4 (-3) Dex: 20 (+5) Con: 10 (0) Int: 13 (+1) Wis: 15 (+2) Char: 16 (+3)

Since my character already has 20 dex, should I choose a feat instead of adding to my stats? I’m thinking of the dual wielding feat but many seem to think its useless?

Would love to hear some thoughts!

Are there any other practical reasons for choosing proficiency in Intelligence saving throws, other than seeing through illusions?

Are there any other practical reasons for choosing proficiency in Intelligence saving throws, other than seeing through illusions?

It was suggested to me to take the Resilient feat. I considered taking Intelligence, but I can only think back to a handful of occasions where I used an Intelligence saving throws and it was always to do with illusion magic.


Choose one ability score. You gain the following benefits:

  • Increase the chosen ability score by 1, to a maximum of 20.

  • You gain proficiency in saving throws using the chosen ability.

(PHB p. 168)

I mean, other than to have a better chance of seeing through an illusion spell, is there any point in having a proficiency with Intelligence saving throws?

It seems like it is the least useful out of all the saving throws proficiencies.

Dexterity, Wisdom and Constitution get used the most; Strength and Charisma less so, but Intelligence…

Of course, if you are in a campaign where illusions are very common, then yes I can see how this could be very beneficial, but for most campaigns I can’t see the point.

Are there any other uses for the Intelligence saving throw, such as to counter a monster’s special ability (other than an illusion)?

This is a question about saving throws, not ability checks.

Mobile Phones And Mobile Broadband – The Secrets Of Choosing The Perfect Deal

How exactly do you choose the perfect mobile phone deal? Or mobile broadband? Join me, as I show you buy phone list!
Let’s face it, if you’re trying to find yourself a new mobile phone, or if you’re trying to get yourself that perfect mobile broadband deal, it can be a bit of a minefield. You have to factor in the tariff, how many minutes you get, how many texts, whether you get international roaming… well, the list goes on. But the thing is, it doesn’t have to be a minefield. It can actually be really, really easy. Like anything, though, it takes a bit of preparation. You need to get your mind straight, and then everything else will follow on from that. There’s no point running in half-cocked, and buying a mobile phone or a mobile broadband package, purely on the spur of the moment. Otherwise you’ll get buyer’s remorse, and you won’t enjoy your purchase. Like anything in life, prepare, prepare, prepare!
Step 1 – Analyse what you really want from your new deal
Ok, it sounds obvious, and it sounds silly, but you’d be amazed how many people don’t do this. You need to ask yourself: ‘What factors determine that I need a new mobile phone or mobile broadband? What benefits do I want to get from my new gadget? How am I going to use it?’ In essence, sit down and follow this rough guideline:
– How many minutes-worth of calls do I, or will I, make per month?
– How many text messages do I send per month?
– Do I need to send photo messages?
– Do I need internet access? If I do, might I be better off getting a mobile broadband package?
– How much am I willing to (or can afford to) pay every month?
Only when you’ve answered those questions in your mind should you move on to step 2.
Step 2 – Choosing the right handset
This is the bit that traditionally is the hardest. You know, now, what deal you want, but have you decided on a phone? As before, don’t just buy the first one you find! Fortunately, you have a tool on your side, here: comparison sites (think along the lines of MobileShop, Pricerunner, or Kelkoo). They list everything you ca buy, and will let you search under various criteria, like price, how many minutes and so on. So, go on to one of them, armed with the knowledge you have from Step 1, and start searching. Once you filled in what you want from the deal, no doubt lots of mobile phones or mobile broadband packages will come back.
Now, the next bit of advice may sound contrary, but basically… once you have fed in the details of what you want from the deal, the comparison site will bring back handsets that match that deal. So, you know that whatever you’re now seeing is within your range of options. Once you know that, it lets you move onto the next step with confidence…
Step 3 – Choose from the heart!
Now that you’ve made all the logical choices about what you need, you have a list of mobile phones and mobile broadband packages that fit your needs. So, now, you can choose a handsets based on what you want, on how the handset looks, or how you like the feel of it, or the fact it’s got a massive camera, or the fact that it plays back 93 billion different types of music. Or if you’re looking at mobile broadband, how it can run at speeds of 300 Megamassivemungabits per second!
You see, this is why you made all the important choices early on. This is why you did all the boring ‘what do I really need?’ stuff right at the start. You did it so that NOW, you can jump in and grab whatever mobile phones catch your eye, whatever mobile broadband package says, to you, ‘Buy me!’ And voila, before you know it, you’ll have bought the perfect deal!


Choosing an independent hash function, given hash function value

Supposed we have a function $ h:U\to [m_1]$ . Given this hash function, can we generate without using randomization or a universal hash collection another hash $ h’:U \to [m_2]$ , which depends on $ h$ and the values of $ h'(x)$ are uniform? i.e., for every value $ y\in [m_2]$ we have $ \Pr_{x} (h'(x)=y|h)=1/m_2$ ($ x$ is chosen at random).

I know that if $ U=[2^t]$ , $ m_1=2^{n_1}$ , $ m_2=2^{n_2}$ , $ t>n_1+n_2$ and $ h(x)$ is the first $ n_1$ bits of $ x$ this problem is easy: we can select $ h'(x)$ to be the bits $ n_1+1$ till $ n_2$ of $ x$ . My question is how to generalized this approche.

Does the Kineticist feat Augmented Elements function as Expanded Element for choosing Infusion and Utility Wild Talents?

Does the Kineticist feat Augmented Elements function as Expanded Element (Su) for choosing Infusion and Utility Wild Talents?

Augmented Elements simply put is… you get your choice of an additional simple blast of any element at an extra Burn cost of 1 if not acquired the normal way; As well as gaining the Psionic Sub-type for Psionic feats, metapsionic feats, psionic creation feats. And though not mentioned more than likely the ability to hold a psionic focus.

Expanded Element simply put is … you secondary access to an element. Choosing the same Element grants its composite Blasts as well as your choice of an infusion or utility related to that element. While a new element grants that element’s simple blast and basic use (wild talent).

EX: Prime Element: Aether

Augmented Element: chose Air

Can I then choose Utilities, Infusions and Composite Blast of the Air Element.

When choosing payment options during checkout, should the Paypal option go directly to Paypal, or show a “continue to Paypal” link?

I currently have 2 payment options during checkout: Credit Card and Paypal. Currently, clicking on the Credit Card option will reveal a credit card form, and clicking on the Paypal option will take the user to Paypal checkout (on the Paypal site).

I have also seen it where sites such as Netflix, will show a “continue to paypal” link after selecting the Paypal payment method, instead of going straight to Paypal (shown below)

Payment Options

Paypal option selected

Is the “continue to paypal” link helpful to the user, or does it just add an extra step/confusion (because the user isn’t taken straight to Paypal after selecting the Paypal option)?
