New Intego Mac Podcast Episode

The Intego Mac Podcast episode 84 is now available!

Google takes the spotlight after revealing that it stored some passwords unencrypted, in plain text, for as long as fourteen years. Oh, and by the way, you probably didn’t know it, but for years Google has been tracking your online purchases for which you’ve received receipts in your Gmail account; we explain how to find and remove your purchase history from the dossier Google keeps about you.

We also discuss a bit about the U.S. vs. Huawei situation, and how it may affect Apple.

And one more thing: Apple says that it’s trying to make web ads truly private.

Be sure to check out the episode show notes for links to the stories.
