Grohs offers tips on password protection

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — George Grohs of Coastal Computers in Somesville will offer a password protection workshop at the Southwest Harbor Public Library on Wednesday, April 25, from 5:30-7 p.m.

It’s difficult to remember all of the passwords to all of the sites and software people use, and losing control of them is a big security issue. Although data breaches are out of one’s control, passwords that can withstand brute-force attacks and relentless “frenemies” can be created. Avoiding both types of attacks is dependent on security practices and the organization of passwords. Attendees will learn password protection tips and more.

Space is limited and preregistration is required. Call the library at 244-7065.
