Are you syncing?
People always ask me about the cloud
What is the “cloud”? the Cloud is a space on the internet that you can store your digital data. So when you check your e-mail its stored on the “e-mail” server.
My general rules for cloud
Security is a must, long passwords i.e. over 8 characters, mix of numbers, letters, symbols
Never store anything on a cloud service that is not backed up on your local computer.
If the cloud service closed would you be ok to loose what what stored on the cloud?
