Problems with Web of Trust (WOT)

Web of Trust (WOT) is one of the most trusted and popular add-ons used by millions of users worldwide to check the safety ratings of websites and has long been recommended by SenCom. Recently it has been discovered that there are currently some privacy and security issues with the add-on that warrant a recommendation to immediately disable the add-on or remove it until these issues are resolved by WOT.

Disable the add-on in Mozilla Firefox by clicking the green button, top right of browser where it is showing. Or if the green button is not shown on the top right of your browser — Click on Tools on the Firefox menu bar; click on Add-ons; click on Extensions and next to WOT click on Disable or on Remove.

Disable the add-on in Google Chrome by clicking the Customize and Control Google Chrome selection at the top right of browser, then select Settings from the menu, then select Extensions at the upper left, and finally uncheck the WOT Enabled check box.

Disable the add-on in Internet Explorer by clicking the Gear Icon in the top right of browser, then click on Manage Add-ons in the menu, then click on the WOT listing, and finally click on Disable.

SenCom Awarded $5,000 from Google Fiber!

SenCom members celebrated with cake and coffee at the December 11 Meeting where it was announced that Google Fiber had awarded the group $5,000.  The award will be used to update and replace tired equipment in the classroom, making the SenCom workshops even better.

Google Fiber said it appreciated the manner in which SenCom strives to cross the “digital divide” by bringing computer awareness and skills to our seniors community.

THANK YOU GOOGLE FIBER!

More Volunteers Still Needed

We still have a vacancy for the position of Program Director.

Also, more classroom assistants are always needed and is a great way to help out. If you would like to inquire about these openings, or other ways to volunteer, call or email our president Bob Bowser.
