In the next posts we will consider how to password protect data in popular applications and how to restore access to your data if you forget your password.
When it comes to keeping your private data safe on the Internet, it is most important to use secure passwords. Some people use the same password for a wide range of online services that they use. While it is much easier to remember just one password for everything, it is, obviously, a much less secure solution. If someone manages to guess or hack your password then they can, theoretically, access all of your online services. Others make a point of using different passwords for different sites while keeping them written down on paper or stored somewhere on the computer close at hand. Again, this also presents an inherent risk, particularly in working environments where you are not the only person present.
