Fitbit Alta HR review: Compromising features for a slim profile and 7-day battery life

There's little denying that the Fitbit Alta HR is a reiterative product. It looks very similar to the regular Alta and a bit like a smaller Charge 2, but it sits somewhere between the two in terms of features. When it was announced last month, Fitbit called it the slimmest fitness tracker with continuous heart rate monitoring, a distinction that had to be made to justify the same $150 price as the Charge 2 while packing fewer options on paper.

I came to the Alta HR a bit skeptic. The Charge 2 was by far the most convincing Fitbit I'd ever used and even one of the best all-around activity trackers on the market.

Twitter added support for two-factor authentication apps and forgot to tell anyone

Passwords are not enough to protect your data. That much should be clear after spending any amount of time on the internet. There are constant hacks and leaks of user data, which sometimes lead to cracked passwords floating around in the darker corners of the internet. Two-factor authentication (2FA) can protect your accounts, but not all services make it easy. Until recently, Twitter's 2FA was a pain in the butt, but it added support for authenticator apps a few months ago and didn't tell anyone.
