Welcome to Mollify!

My name is Bob Coleman. I am an IT engineer, and I have built this free site to help senior citizens navigate the harsh world of tech. Yes, older people may not be able to learn all those new technologies as quickly as young people do, but let's not forget that they are the ones who have invented the Internet, computers, laptops, and so on.

Today, many Americans aged 65 or older use the Internet and various mobile apps daily. It is true that with all the new inventions, technology can become overwhelming for them. This is where I come in. I have built this site with the goal of showing older adults how to use a wide range of Internet-based services, applications and tools, which have the potential to make their lives easier and happier. It's a non-profit project that should help many adults overcome their fear of technology.

Join the army of senior citizens who use technology to improve their lives! Check out these stats from the World Economic Forum.


U.S. seniors who connect to the Internet to stay informed, connect with friends and family, shop, make travel plans, etc.

Seniors who say that technology has had a mostly positive impact on society. Three-quarters of them go online on a daily basis.


Adults aged 65 or older who think that recent technologies may disrupt their privacy, invading their personal and financial security.
