Etc., each and every information is stored in some nor the other form on the web. Some of our data might be breached and we wouldn’t even know about it because we tend to not look at some sites again and that’s were some hackers try to target the data.
With recent leaks in music industry to some bank data being available, from some famous applications getting hacked to some user database being sold online, everything seems to be turning the table round and the situation is alarming.

So the question arises whether we should discontinue living in the digital world? The answer is a big “NO”. Instead of thinking in the other direction why not we take some precautions from our own side in order to safeguard our privacy and information which we don’t want to shell out. As per some research which took place recently, the most common password which was used by people was “123456”, and there are people who don’t follow the two-step verification while signing n some of the important websites and also while making payment. It is we the users who have to take some important measures in order to safeguard own identity and then blame the authorities.
