This initiative has been active since October 2005 so we guess this must be their 7th birthday! Many happy returns.

The Media Agency Group are organising the campaign and Get Safe Online’s CEO Tony Neate says “Put simply, the internet is one of the greatest inventions the world has ever seen. It has so much to offer us all. Get Safe Online Week is definitely not about taking the fun out of being connected online, but about making sure everyone knows how to stay safe and secure when using it. We want to get as many people as possible sharing their experiences to make more people aware of how to protect themselves, their friends and family online.”

One of our challenges, and we may not be unique(!), is keeping track of our personal and business passwords, usernames, security questions etc etc.

All Things D have a review of some of the Password Manger systems / apps that are around and , sort of, recommend Last Pass.

They have a slightly strange sounding video!
