A lot of people are very careless when it comes to protecting their personal and sensitive information. There are many cases of identity thefts, credit cards frauds, internet banking frauds all the time but it seemed that no one really put serious thoughts into protecting and making sure that their personal information are not compromised till it is too late.
Recently, I have a very frustrating incident in which I realized the important of protecting my personal and sensitive information. I have to send my laptop to a local service center for repair. Before I sent my laptop for repair, I ensure that I have all my information lock all and encrypt in a folder, clear away all my saved passwords, caches, browsing history and so on to prevent people from accessing my personal information. Thinking that this was enough, I sent in my laptop.
