Wednesday, January 22 at 11 a.m., Simplifying your Passwords
One of the biggest technology challenges we face today is remembering all of our usernames and passwords. Lance Pendelton from MacInspires will show you how to simplify this process with things already built into your Mac, iPhone and iPad, as well as simple software like 1Password that will help eliminate your password nightmare. The concepts introduced this workshop can also be applied to PCs and other devices/apps.
