Passwords and How to Manage Them
We have all read about problems with passwords, how they are stolen, how you need to change them, that you need to make them different from each other and keep them secret and on and on. As our lives become increasingly dependent on internet-based activities the problem of managing your passwords becomes more daunting. The solution is to use a Password Manager. With one master password you can store, manage and keep all of your passwords and other on-line data safe. In this class you will learn how to use a free program called LastPass.* We will walk you through how to download, set up and use this helpful program. We will have two classes, one that focuses on Windows-based users and one for Macintosh-based users.**
With a password manager you can start using passwords the way the experts suggest while actually finding it easier to perform everyday activities on the internet.
We will walk-through every step of the process and provide a printed cheat-sheet to help you remember the steps when you’re starting out.
The Macintosh** class: Sunday, November 16th from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Windows** class: Monday, November 17th from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Class taught by Brad Keyes as part of the Community Life Committee series of programs.
* The vast majority of Last Pass features are free. There are some mobile-based features that you may wish to use, which cost a dollar per month.
**You’re welcome to attend either class, regardless of which operating system (Windows or Macintosh) you use, the only difference will be the screen shots. The LastPass program works basically the same way on each platform.
