Defluenced Ep011: Secure Your Keys!

We had an issue where I (Unkle Bonehead) lost the keys for the Defluenced Hive account. I ended up having to start a new one. So make sure you are following DefluencedCast.

Good Ideas

Back them up
Back them up again in a different place.
Back them up a third time in yet another place.
Print them out on paper.
Put them in a safe.
Send a copy to a trusted friend or family member.
Repeat as many times as you feel necessary.

Bad ideas

Send them in unencrypted email to the FBI, CIA or any other 3 letter agency
Post it notes on your monitor
Bulletin board at your church, the library, or other public place
On hard drives that have a history of failing
Let your browser remember them
Open forums and message boards
Tattoo on your forearm
On your dog’s ID collar
On a refrigerator magnet in your RV.
Let Coinbase, Kraken, Binance, or another exchange hold your keys (NOT your keys, NOT your crypto)

What do you think? How do you back up and keep your keys safe? Let us know us if we missed anything.
