The times are a changing folks! Most kids have never seen a cassette tape, we all use email more than snail mail and many of us have phones smarter than we are.
As technology becomes ever more necessary in our lives it is important to know some best practices and tools to keep yourselves and your information secure. We hope to shed a little light on those topics in this portion of the newsletter.
This month we want you to know about "Do not track" an option available in most browsers that tell sites you don't want to be tracked by third party cookies. Twitter is one of the major sites honoring the option. Check the following sites for more info on "Do not track"
Linked In Warning:
A large number of Linked In passwords were leaked recently. Though the passwords were encrypted many have been or will be cracked. It is especially important to change your password if it is simple and/or your are using it for other sites. This is where it pays to have a more complex password that would be difficult or impossible to crack with existing technology. It may be worthwhile to take a second look at last months tool www.lastpass.com
As always the full site URLs are listed for those of you following the best practice of not clicking links.
