MacVoices #18200: Scholle McFarland Takes Control of Mojave


Scholle McFarland and Take Control Books have released the updated and complete version of Take Control of Mojave. The latest version of macOS offers plenty of improvements, but having a guide to it helps you take full advantage. Scholle talks about what you will notice first when you first boot Mojave, and some of her favorite new features. She explains why she considers this a “privacy release” and what protections Apple has put in place in the OS, as well as Safari, to help keep you secure and private. For the latter, Scholle explains some of the changes, a surprising Siri password command, and just how private the Private Browsing feature is.
