Achievement 2: Task: Basic Security on Steem by @havertz || MENTOR BY @CRYPTOKANNON
Thanks very much for your great support and encouragement on my first post on #introduceyourself, the much love, upvotes and healthy comment I got from this Noble platform is really amazing, I am delighted to be among this great family. I really appreciate all that you did for me.
Today I wish to pursue my next task as new comer, as I am eager to know more. My Task today is about "Basic Security on Steemit platform."
One would ask what is security?In my opinion, security is the fundamental rule one should obey in order to get protected from thieves, loss of property, saving ones life or accident. So, transferring this knowledge in Steem is similar to protect one’s account from losses, hackers, compromising one’s account that can lead to discontinuity.
Having known this, it's very important to save the number of keys that one generated from steem as this is the most important for one to be secured in steem blockchain.
In view of these, I have retrieved all my Steemit passwords and saved them on my computer and Email. I also saved copies on my external hard drive.
In a tabular form these keys are listed and their functionality shown as well.
