Overwhelmed by password exhaustion? Retake control by learning to use Apple’s built-in Keychain tool for secure, frustration-free password management across all of your Apple devices.

Passwords and Keychain Class Description

PASSWORDS!?!!?! Am I right? It’s becoming increasingly difficult to manage passwords for all our different online accounts.

Personally, I have over 1,000 passwords for websites, banks, social media, utilities, travel services, and the like. If I had to remember all those passwords on my own, I’d break my brain.

With this much info to keep up with, it’s important to have a secure password vault. That’s where Apple’s Keychain comes in.

The Keychain is Apple’s password management system for macOS. It was introduced years ago with Mac OS 8.6, and has evolved in all subsequent versions of the operating system. The Keychain can contain many types of data: passwords, private keys, certificates, and secure notes.

People keep asking me, “Should I use the Password Assistant suggestions?” In this class I’ll answer that question, and also explore password strategies so that you can create passwords that you can remember (and that you can type in even on the small iPhone keyboard!).

Then we will see how the Keychain syncs through iCloud, where to find it in both macOS and iOS devices, and how to keep it updated and duplicate-free.

Take this class for convenience and peace of mind! Enroll now.
