It is very vital to make sure that all your online passwords saved on your desktop or laptop is very protected on your PC.  You have to protect it not because you want to but because you don't want to be rubbed of a fortune.  Just in case you don't know, let me open your eye to the world of hacking where an individual or a group gets an unauthorized access to your computer and steals most or all of your vital information stored on your networked computer.
