Where can you save your credentials?
Naturally, this is another question that everyone wants to know. Today we have a lot of important and sensitive information that needs to be protected. If you want to store or save your data online, here are some steps to keep it safe:
Step 1: The password protects your documents. Instead of just saving it in your contact list or in your phone notes, keep this data password safe. This ensures that no one but you has access to this information.
Step 2: Save to the cloud. Cloud storage is another way you can secure your credentials. Transfer it to your cloud storage instead of just saving it to your PC or email. Once done, make sure it’s password protected again.
Step 3: Save to portable disk. You can also use a hard disk or pen drive to save this information if you are not sure of saving it to the cloud. Portable disks also have the option to keep passwords, which helps increase security.
Step 4: Be aware and updated. Sensitive financial details are a big risk for everyone, especially with the growing number of hackers. It is important to stay up to date and be aware of new developments. For extreme security you can keep changing your password and ATM PIN code.
