Have to say that the number of people who have expressed their concern about my enforced break has been overwhelming!
It's good to know that my efforts are appreciated - I'm on the way to a full recovery and have learned how to walk again so thanks to you all!
Anyway, getting back to business, I hope that most of you have remembered to do your backups even though I haven't been leaning over your shoulder reminding you for the last few months!
Backups are good but I was reminded quite recently that, should the worst happen, backups are no good if no one can get to them. Have you made an "Emergency" list that you can give to someone you trust? They can then access your iPad , iPhone, laptop or PC without having to call in a computer forensic analyst to get into them, usually at vast expense, if they can get in at all.
There are several apps that can manage your passwords and secure information and they generally only need one master password.
Sometimes we forget that if a partner becomes incapacitated, or worse, it just makes the whole problem more complicated if you can't access your day-to-day files and information.
Easily produced on an A4 sheet of paper and kept somewhere safe for sensible adults only.
Just remember to make the Master Password from capitals, lower case, numbers and things like !@£$%&* - most of these work and make it difficult to crack.

No, using "password" will not do!
