Tell me the truth.. where are you storing passwords to access sites, read email or log on to your PC?
In a simple text file or even on a paper note? 😉
Well, in that case it’s useless hoping nothing bad will ever happen because it will happen!
It’s not good news but it’s statistic data: identity theft is a growing threat and the source of never ending hassles even before we could even notice it. 😥
I did this sort of inattention too, then I understood and I began using a software to safely store my passwords and other personal data. It was fundamental for me that such software run on both the desktop and PDA and I choose eWallet by Iliumsoft since it seemed the best solution.
It actually changed everything. Now my data is always safe and at hand when I travel with my PDA: it’s all a matter of habits!
Now that they released version 5.0 they added a lot of improvements both to the graphics and the synchronization capabilities between the PC and the PDA, so it’s very easy to use.
Send Murphy’s Law to the hell and trash the paper notes with the passwords!
It’s a weak system for your security, much more than not keeping updated the antivirus or the operative system.
Before trashing them be sure to add the data to your favorite electronic wallet! 😉
