Storing user data in Passport is not difficult and can save data essential to a user’s experience. This article will walk you through the basic steps of storing and retrieving user data in Passport.
To get started, clone or download the Passport example template from GitHub. If you want to follow along with this how to, you’ll need to have node and npm installed on your machine. (It should work with older versions, but we used node v8.9.4 and npm 5.6.0 which are the current stable releases at the time of writing.)
Software security is a big deal (167 million LinkedIn user account details are currently for sale on the dark web). Most applications fail to secure user data sufficiently, leaving them vulnerable to attacks resulting in dire consequences.
To combat this issue, we are excited to announce the release of our complete 2016 Guide to User Data Security. The guide compiles everything our development team knows about server and application security and delivers step-by-step code to help you secure your user data. It covers key concepts such as server architecture, firewalling, intrusion detection, password security, two-factor authentication, social hacks, SQL injections and more.
