MacVoices #19105: Joe Kissell Updates Take Control Books on Online Privacy and Passwords

Two of Joe Kissell’s most important books are Take Control of Your Online Privacy and Take Control of Your Passwords, and both have just been updated. Joe joins us to talk about why you should be suspicious about just about anything online. By not being suspicious, you are not just potentially compromising your privacy, but the privacy of others that you are in touch with. Joe provides some surprising examples, and what you can do to improve your chances. He also covers some things Apple is doing to improve your privacy, and updates his advice on improving your passwords as part of your privacy efforts.
