Hello everyone! hope you are doing good? been away for a while due to academic requirement but I'm done now, so I'm back. My goal is to simply explain the security keys however within the context of my understanding. Learning about and understanding the security keys was as a result of the effort of @josepha who took out time out of his tight schedule to ensure i am well informed. so i'll be highlighting some basic security information as regards the Steemit keys.

Question 1- Have you retrieved all your keys on steemit?

Yes, i have retrieved my security keys and they are properly kept away hidden, in a safe place both on Google drive and my PC.

Question2- Do you know each of these key functions and restrictions?

The Master Key: This id used to unlock all the keys of your account, including the owner key.

The Active Key: This key is meant for more sensitive task such as transferring funds, power-ups/down transactions, converting steem dollars, voting for witnesses, updating profile details and avatar and picking market order.

The Memo key: The Memo key is used for encrypting and decrypting memos while transferring funds.

The Owner Key: This is the most powerful key because it can extract any account key. Its main function is to restore a compromised account.

The Posting key: The posting key allows the owner/user to post, comment, edit, vote, rate, and follow or mute other users. It is also recommended that owners log in with their own posting

Question 3- How do you plan to keep your master password?
