(W)(I) Do you store email on your Cloud email provider servers?

If you are like most of us today, we all use and rely on Internet email and especially those that are browser based like Gmail, HotMail, Yahoo mail and others.

Do you also store information you would consider 'confidential' like Health, Financial and photos of yourself?

Recently Kunis Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and High School Musical's Vanessa Hudgens have all had pictures stolen from their emails and smart phones because they stored these pics in the cloud and probably had easy, discoverable or guessable passwords.

If you do store confidential data in the cloud, you should seriously consider long and complex passwords and a password manager like LastPass to remember the passwords and URL's and make it easy to keep track of all those websites we have to login to these days.
