A Chromebook can pair with your Android phone and be used for messaging and video calling. It is perfect for anyone who wants to grab a laptop, sign in, and spend an afternoon watching Netflix or shopping online. You can also use it as a terminal to connect to your Windows PC or Mac.

Solve Your Password Management Problems
Kenneth Tubaugh. Educational Services Director & Program Coordinator
Columbus Computer Society
 
Password theft is a serious problem. The websites and apps that you use are under attack every day. Security breaches occur, and your passwords are stolen. When you reuse the same passwords everywhere, hackers can easily access your email, bank, and other important accounts.
 
Stay Safe with a Simple Password Manager. Security experts recommend that you use a different, randomly generated password for every online account that you create. But how are you supposed to remember and keep up with that many passwords? Bitwarden Password Manager helps you create and manage secure passwords so that you can get back to enjoying your life online.
