Cache Clearing for Mac’s (Apple)

Here are the steps you need to take to clear your browser cache if you are working on an Apple Mac. We often get calls from our clients saying, “I don’t see the changes you (or I) made!” If there is no obvious reason for this, and if we are seeing the changes, we usually ask the client to clear their browser’s cache. This happens enough that we thought we should leave instructions through a blog post. The “Cache” is a browser’s temporary storage area where it saves images and files from the web pages you visit. This helps the page will load faster next time you access it. The problem is that when you are making or reviewing changes to your website, you obviously need to see the very latest version of the page. Clearing your cache allows you to see the most recent version of the website.

Excerpts from the article by Julianne Pepitone include:

AOL has released more details about a major hack of AOL Mail this month, in which users’ accounts were compromised to send out spam messages.

The company is still investigating the breach, but AOL confirmed in a company blog post Monday that “there was unauthorized access to information regarding a significant number of user accounts.”

Thankfully, no financial details appear to be affected. But hackers did access a trove of personal data including AOL users’ email addresses, mailing addresses, contacts, encrypted passwords, encrypted answers to security questions used for resetting passwords, and some employee information.
