A quick introduction to HTTPS

This topic came up a few times today, so I quickly recorded an overview. This is a beginner’s guide to HTTPS and SSL certificates. I’ll explain what they do, the differences between different sorts of certificates and explain how with a decent host you should be able to get an HTTPS certificate for free with a couple of clicks!

Online security: Generating and using passwords with password managers

This week there was a big leak of millions of email address – some with passwords. So I’ve made a 7 minute video that’s really worth watching explaining why you should use a password manager to generate and remember passwords, and how doing so is not just more secure but is actually more convenient as well.

If you want to try a password manager, check out 1Password (my favourite) or LastPass (others are available).
