Posted on May 8th, 2020 by

On this episode of the Intego Mac Podcast… Passwords are easy to implement, but keeping them secure is not that simple. On World Password Day, Josh and Kirk discuss how passwords might be replaced by other means of authentication. And they discuss the UK’s COVID-19 contact tracing app which raises privacy concerns, a Facebook bug that caused lots of apps to fail, why you should always check that auto-completed email address, and more.
