The Jackson County Public Library in Sylva will offer a free Digital Passwords class on Wednesday, May 18th, at 5:45 PM. The 90-minute class will be taught by JCPL staffer Laura Chapman and Macon County Library staffer Cassie Chambliss.

Many people feel overwhelmed by the number of passwords they have to keep up with. It's hard to invent and remember these long strings of characters, but passwords that are easy to remember are often easy for hackers to crack.

This hands-on class will address the challenges and frustrations that come from having so many passwords and introduce ways to make passwords more secure AND more manageable. In this class, participants will:
  • Evaluate their own password practices
  • Learn how to create stronger passwords
  • Learn about tools and strategies for managing passwords
With so much of our lives and personal information in digital form, it's important to feel confident about our security and privacy systems. This class is designed to help participants identify their most pressing password needs and alleviate some of the headaches we face in managing our digital security. The class participants must have basic computer knowledge, such as keyboard and mouse skills.

The free class is limited to the first 16 people who register. To do so, or for more information, please call the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva at 586-2016. This class is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library.
