Changing your password

It is essential that you change the default password to something you can remember but one that is strong.  A recommended method of saving passwords is to use a password “vault” such as Keepass — it runs on your computer, your tablet or your phone (at least Android). Get the professional edition. Another excellent one is LastPass and is my (Gil’s) current favorite.

Signing up for the email list

We also maintain a group email list (aka “list-server” to some) and all family members will be well-served by signing up for that. Important and fun information is sent there and we try not to bombard you. Send an email to family-request (at) jonesvalley.us with the word “subscribe” as the subject. No text needed. You know to replace (at) with a symbol, right? Your request will be moderated and acted upon as soon as possible.
