Internet Banking Passwords

Internet Banking Passwords

An annoying change happened to browsers last year and we seeing it regularly in some customers computers still. This email alert is for you to check if you have this issue. The issue is your computer REMEMBERING your BANKING PASSWORD. It is dangerous for your computer to remember the password for a couple of reasons...

If you get hacked by someone they can easily go into your browser and view the username & password. If you get a virus that "sniffs" out passwords, it can also easily extract your password and send it to the owner of the virus.

Both scenarios give them full access to your bank account. Clearly this is bad.

Computer Repairs at Level 2 - Part 2

It's been an exciting two weeks under level two. We were flooded with large numbers of computers that have been waiting to get repaired as things broke over the lockdown.We fixed all sort of things from Macbooks to iPads to HP All-in-One computers to Asus laptops.

We normally aim for same day (24 hour) computer repairs, but for a while, we were out to a 4 or 5 day repair time! It was kind of shocking. We did some overtime and worked hard on getting your fixes done and have managed to get it down to just a day or two now.

We have a few restrictions in place for lockdown safety reasons which includes only one customer at a time in the shop. Usually this is fine, but once or twice there has been a queue down the street! There were about 4 people waiting.

How has your experience with queuing been? It's a new thing to get used to as we hardly ever have to queue in Christchurch or New Zealand for anything. I hope things have been going well for you under level two and you are healthy, happy and productive.
