Chapter 15. Improving Your Lifestyle wit... > Store Personal Data Securely

Store Personal Data Securely

You could argue that medical data is about as personal as data can get. However, there's plenty of sensitive personal data besides medication that you might want to have access to on your Treo. As an example, consider all the different user IDs and passwords you use to access popular Web services, such as Amazon.com and eBay. If you want to access your account on an online service while away from your desktop or notebook computer, you need to know your user ID and password. Additionally, you might decide to log on and access your email from a temporary location, in which case you need to know not only a user ID and password, but also the mail servers involved. All this information can be safely stored away on your Treo.

Tip

This probably goes without saying, but be extra cautious about creating a password for DataShield that no one else can figure out. It's great that DataShield combines all your personal data in one place, but it also makes it that much easier for others to get your personal information if your password is compromised and they get their hands on your device.
