June 13th General Meeting- Securing Your Mac
May 31st, 2016 by jyamada

We Apple users have truly enjoyed a golden period where hackers did not care about the Mac and instead spent all their energies making Windows users miserable. But with the ever increasing popularity of the Mac, we are going to have to toughen ourselves for a brave new world.

Come see some security best practices that can help protect your Mac and keep you safe. We will show you how to:

NOTE: Please, please update your Time Machine and/or make a clone of your operating system before making any of the following changes— most especially the removing of administrative privileges from your everyday account.

1) Make an administrative account and turn your everyday account into a regular account.
2) Remove Adobe Flash and download a copy of Google Chrome as a workaround.
3) How to safe boot your computer to clear some problems.
4) How to scan for malware on OS X 10.8 or higher.

Come join us at the Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center (Ecotrust Center), 721 NW Ninth Avenue. Question and answer hour starts at 6:30pm, with the main discussion starting around 7:30 pm and ending at 9 pm.

If you find that you want to divest yourself of your old Apple hardware to make way for something new and shiny then you can bring up to 5 items to swap at the meeting.
