Fri, 2016-04-29 23:30
Security has never been more important. Any time you open a file, you leave a trail behind. When you delete files, they remain in the trash until you manually purge them. Your computer can even use certain services to help websites and apps pin down your location. And your machine's screen lock setup may not suit your needs.
