Unlock Safari’s Secrets on Your Mac in Just Five Lessons

This course, in just five lessons, teaches you the ins and out of using Safari in an efficient manner. There are features in Safari that most of us never explore. Thus, for example, we miss knowing how to avoid having our search data collected and sold.

The multitude of icons and buttons can be confusing and lead to false starts and frustration. We would like to help you avoid such situations! These five videos will help you make sense of both many obvious and hidden Safari features. View and review them at your own pace. And don’t forget to call on us, BoomerTECH Adventures guides, Jill, Chris, and Ed. We are available to answer any of your questions at ed@boomertechadventures.com
