Quote36. Save Password In ICloud Keychain To Access It Across Devices


This one worries me.  Passwords are supposed to be secret.  Nobody can remember all their passwords so we have Keychain to remember them for us.  Then they ask you to upload Keychain to iCloud where it could be less secure than Hillary's private email accounts.

Like when my boss asked me to write the WiFi password on the AP today? It's bad enough I have a post-it note with the password; just in case anyone needs it. Not that anyone EVER remembers that it's up there, no matter how many times I tell them.

I got so sick of people asking for it, people who have worked in this shop since that old-ass b/g Linksys was put in, I made little signs for ALL of their desks & the Conference Room with the Wifi passwd on it. Thing can't handle enough traffic to make it worth hijacking, and you can't even see it from most of the parking lot either. Built-in security! Derp a derp.
A little diddie 'bout black 'n cyan...two reflective colors doin' the best they can.

You mean Shift-Cmd-D?  No time to be clicking around all day! :P

QuoteThere is a list of recent locations you have saved as shown by clicking the drop down menu shown in the second attached image below.
Love that for saving new InDesign docs after I've already placed something from the job's folder on the server. Drop that menu, first location is going to be the Links folder and I'm right there. Pains me to no end when a co-worker (**cough**Manager**cough**) goes navigating through the dozen subfolders manually via the sidebar. ffs, we ain't got all day!!  >:(
