We are also seeking volunteer work to directly serve people who are unhoused or who live in public housing. Please contact us with any questions or to make a referral.
We love password managers because they make the difficult job of logging into websites a lot easier, and they also help you to change your passwords to avoid using the same password or a minor variation of it on multiple websites (a common faux pas that can lead to security problems).
Our favorite password manager is 1Password. With 1Password installed on your PC or Mac, here are 3 ways you can autofill a password:
Do you need help setting up or optimizing your passwords? We work with all kinds of password managers, and this is one of our most common requests.
Our favorite antivirus, Malwarebytes, has a new offering that blocks ads and fraudulent websites in your web browser. It's called Malwarebytes Browser Guard, and it's free. Malwarebytes has a track record of effectively protecting consumers from predatory advertising and websites. While we recommend having a full antivirus on your machine like Malwarebytes Premium, Browser Guard can provide an additional layer of protection for your web browsing, and provides protection from scams and advertising in your web browser even if you don't have the premium version of Malwarebytes.
