As the time we spent online increases, the amount of data that we placed online also increased. From your emails in Gmail, your friends information in Facebook, your confidential files in Dropbox, your credit card detail in Paypal, we almost throw our whole life onto the Web. The problem is – is it safe to do so?

Over the past few weeks and months, we have seen several high profile companies got hacked. Gawker, Mozilla, Trapster, to name a few. Million of usernames and passwords were leaked to the public. This is only the beginning and I am sure we bound to see more of such things happen.

So for this week poll, “Do You Still Feel Safe Storing Your Files/Information Online?

Let’s the voting begin.
