Keep Prying Eyes Off The Pictures on Your Computer

Aug 17, 2007
When was it last that you conveniently saved some personal pictures of yours into your computer? Did it ever occur to you that these personal pictures of yours could be open for public view, the very next minute?

The cyberspace is today full of minds trying to break through in to the safely stored information on the computers. In fact, there are people working round the clock to actually devise ways to get access to private information stored by other users on their computers.

Should you be worried?

Hackers have always held that special eye for laying their hands on the information most private to the user. On the top of this list come personal details, pictures and personal videos. Pictures saved on the computers have always been an easy target for those who know how to gain access.

If official reports are anything to go by, figures state that every minute, at least 8 out of 10 computers are under the risk of hacking. What is worst is
that the personal information such as pictures and videos are the easiest target.

Beyond all, as the photos and pictures are of an extremely personal nature, having them open for public view brings you a lot of embarrassment. It is quite an unpleasant feeling knowing that your personal photos or pictures are now easily available for millions to see. The anguish and helplessness you feel over being left vulnerable leaves you looking for a suitable solution.

What needs to be done?

Fortunately, help is not too far. The right is way to opt for well-designed software that can be installed on your personal computer to help you in hiding your folders. Such software allows you to select special folders carrying this information and protect from any unauthorized access. You can also have the facility of removing these files totally from all folders of your computer so that no one can actually see them.

Besides, the problem increases when you are sharing your computer with a roommate, colleague or even a family member. It often becomes difficult to apply passwords, which could be objectionable to the other users. It is here that the need for some settings arises which the other users cannot make out easily. In other words, other users just fail to spot any hiding software being installed on the computer.

You can contact your local computer software store for some suitable options. You can also do some research on the internet for some offers.
