Managing Passwords

With the recent alert about 1.2 billion passwords that were stolen by Russian hackers, now would be a good time to change your password. Also, having a separate password for each website you use is important and necessary. If one account is compromised, and you have other accounts that use the same password, you've just made the lives of the bad guys that much easier. 

Managing all of those passwords is a pain, unless you use some of the tips mentioned before in the MacITPros.com newsletter. If you’re still unsure or want to learn more and you missed joining me for the free Managing Passwords program at the Lake Villa District Library, that’s OK. You can still download the presentation slides, and watch the entire presentation below.

I will preface this with I not a security expert, I am above average in the paranoia department, support professional. This information is to be used as a guideline, ultimately you are responsible your on-line security.

See the Slides from the presentation here.
