Recording of “How they hack your passwords”

Presented by U3A Technology Corner, Helen Smith (U3A Nunawading) - 20th July 2022

Think your passwords are safe? Find out how the ‘bad guys’ get your passwords without you knowing. Explore ways of protecting yourself, even if your passwords have been ‘stolen’. This session will help you appreciate the risks involved with poor passwords and give you some strategies for keeping your account logins safe.

What is hacking and why should you care? Do you really need to worry about your U3APP login or just your bank account? How can you check if your email address has been stolen? Are your passwords following a common pattern? What are the best ways of generating and ‘remembering’ your passwords? These are just some of the questions answered in this riveting session.

. Vaccination Requirements at U3APP

As was reported to the last E-Bulletin, the Victorian DHHS and the City of Port Phillip have changed the COVID restrictions, effective as of 11.59pm Friday 22 April 2022. The following requirements will no longer apply for Community Centres:

  • All staff, vendors and attendees are fully vaccinated.
  • Electronic QR Code Check-in is completed on arrival.
  • Covid Marshal is appointed.

The new COVID restrictions mean vaccinations are no longer mandated for Community Centres, like U3APP. Therefore the Committee of Management has decided, unanimously, that the current U3APP policy that requires members to be vaccinated to attend face to face classes or events is no longer necessary. This is in line with both the current Victorian DHHS and CoPP restrictions.

Department of Health and Human Services currently recommends a 4th dose for those over 65 years which they are calling the Winter dose.

The Committee of Management recommend members keep their vaccinations up to date for their own safety but there is no longer the need to send proof of vaccination to U3APP.

Entry to Mary Kehoe Centre and the other U3APP venues no longer requires QR code check-in or a COVID Marshal. U3APP thanks all the office volunteers and face to face tutors for their hard work associated with the COVID Marshal process over recent months.

Keep Safe.

. Changes to COVID Restrictions

CHANGES TO THE COVID RESTRICTIONS 11.59PM FRIDAY 22 APRIL 2022

The Victorian DHHS and the City of Port Phillip have changed the COVID restrictions, effective as of 11.59pm Friday 22 April 2022. The following requirements will no longer apply for Community Centres: 

  • All staff, vendors and attendees are fully vaccinated.
  • Electronic QR Code Check-in is completed on arrival.
  • Covid Marshal is appointed.

For U3A Port Phillip, this means that:

  • Members entering a U3APP venue are no longer required to do the QR check-in or have their check-in and vaccination status checked before entering the venue.
  • There is no requirement for a check-in marshal at the entrance to the venues.
  • At the Mary Kehoe Centre, the front door no longer needs to be locked.
  • At the other Community Centres, entry remains through the locked doors.

The requirement for members to be vaccinated in order to attend face to face classes or events is under consideration by the U3APP Community of Management, and remains in effect until further advice.

To maximise the safety of our members, ventilation and contact tracing remain important.  

  • Everyone is asked to increase the ventilation of the rooms by opening the doors and windows during classes. The windows in Room 3 at Mary Kehoe are scheduled to be replaced on 6th June, such that they can be opened.
  • Any member who is diagnosed with COVID is asked to advise the Health & Safety Office by email on hso@u3app.org.au, to enable contact tracing of inadvertent exposures to COVID in the U3APP venues.

Keep Safe.
