Keeping Passwords Safe
March 10, 2021
If current COVID-19 restrictions are still in effect in March 2021, this meeting will be via Zoom video conference (connection details below).
Keeping passwords safe
Speaker: Chris Taylor, President, OPCUG
We are told: don’t write down passwords; don’t reuse passwords; make passwords long and complex. Once you get beyond half a dozen or so logon IDs, it becomes impossible to keep them all in your head. Chris Taylor will show how to use free software that stores all your usernames and passwords along with related information and protects them with a single, very strong password.
Chris will demonstrate how to synchronize the password database between a desktop computer and a smart phone. As well, he will show how the program can be configured to log on to web sites automatically.
Don’t let your online accounts get compromised. It’s easy and free.
