    I usually update my computer within a week of the release of an update. After the most recent update I started having problems acessing websites I had not previously visited. The error message was similar to the one at the 2:34 mark of your video. I tried numerous fixes and nothing worked. Since the error was coming via Screen Time I simply turned it off and no more problem. Some Screen Time setting had been change by the update, which seems to be happening with recent updates.

    Informative and easy to follow. I’d love to see an episode geared towards setting rules in the Mail app.

    Jim: I would start with this one, using iCloud rules instead of doing them on one machine only: But if you are using something else for email, like Gmail, then obviously you'd need to use their rules system.
