Comprehensive guide to data/online security (i…

Hey everyone,I was just curious is there was somewhere that I/anyone else who might be interested may go to see a comprehensive list of measures to take in order to improve ones online security such as (but not limited to) VPN, proxies, password banks, browsers, strategies, etc.It would be great to see one. And I imagine it would be especially useful for the novice who may not know where to start.Thank you all!

Can I turn an old iPhone 5s into a secure seco…

I have an iPhone 5s that still works very well (I took good care of it). It’s using the latest version of IOS 11, charging works great, it can connect to the internet, etc. I used to use my apple ID on there so I’m afraid that it may be too late to turn it into my secondary device. What can I do to make it as secure as possible and use it as a secondary device for activities separate from iMessage, Gmail (for school), and social media?

A good security camera to catch my stalker’s d…

Context: Coming home from work during March of 2018 and my dad comes up to me and asked if I pissed anybody off? To my reply I said no. This guy apparently drove in front of our house and starts talking shit to my dad. Now my father doesn’t speak good English but he knows that he isn’t saying nice things. I told my dad not to worry about it and he would probably get bored and stop. He didn’t. He kept doing it all day during April 2018. He would honk his horn and hold it for the longest time and start doing the same shit. He even went as low as putting nails in front of our house. We called the cops and they said they couldn’t do anything about it unless we had his tag. We bought one of those hunting cameras where they would record small seconds when the camera notices any movement but that’s it. And it’s not really any good. He stopped doing for awhile but now he’s back at it again and it seems more constant this time.Important: I’m looking for a camera that doesn’t rely on WiFi. We do have WiFi at home but we have about an acre of land and the WiFi doesn’t reach the road. So a good security camera that replies on an sd card or aa camera with really long wires.
