Anyone here a pro with AWS?

Literally a decade ago I setup and instance to run a little game I was working on. I stopped the instance and kept something about it open so I get a bill between $0.14-0.40 a month for whatever I had. I'd kinda like to take a look at it and start it up again but I can't figure out how to connect to it anymore.

We'll need a little more details:

What AWS product are you using? S3? Lambda? EC2?
Have you logged into the dashboard recently?

I logged in today but prior login was probably 2012. Believe it's an EC2 cluster as that's the last web address I have in my browser. It was for a html5 browser game.

First thing's first- do you have 2FA set up? That's my first question to all people with an AWS account. Even if you don't set up cloudfront to notify you when it goes over a certain amount, secure that ish! I've seen people getting outrageous bills because of hacks.

Probably not. I don't believe it was an option in 2012. I'll do that. Thanks for the reminder.
