Encrypt your data using Chrome

Google Chrome is a wonderful browser to use, especially because it’s so clean. But many users don’t realise it also gives them an option to encrypt their passwords, providing even more security.


To do so, head to the options menu through the “wrench” icon on the top-right corner of the screen, then click on “options”.


Then, head to the “personal stuff” tab, and then click on the “advanced” button next to “disconnect your Google account”.


There, you’ll be given the option to encrypt your passwords for extra protection. It should be checked by default, but it if it’s not, it’s always best to check.
