    Tasks for the Weekend – November 29, 2020 – YouTube

    Youtube video above for those that want a video version of below.

    When’s the last time you checked your credential manager?

    Passwords that you save on your computer are open to being attacked and culled from your machine.

    There are lots of tools out there that expose these credentials (a hint – if you ever want to see if your security tools protect you from such things, try to download Nirsoft’s tool and see if your system gets a blocking message)

    To review what websites you are saving in the search box type in Credential manager or go to control panel, then All Control Panel Items\Credential Manager.  If you don’t recognize something in there, you may want remove the item!

    However you might find one in there called “Virtualapp/Didlogical”.  If you’ve ever signed into a Windows Live ID, this is as a result and you can leave it there.
