Monahan (42) You Hell betcha! Not just the porno but everything is password protected. I really don't understand why anyone would not do that!

Toadsith (48) I'm the only person that uses my rig, why bother having to enter a password every time I log in or install something?

hodayathink (18) Computer yes, because you need to have a password to be able to remote desktop, and because it's the right thing to do. Drives, no, because there's nothing important enough on any drive I have that I feel the need to password protect it.

Well given the nature of my business and the amount of material I have ( non-porn) Everything I have is password protected, my internet connection its self has three sets of passwords and all internet access is encrypted accept those I allow like PU.
I think my my IP only shows up on here and my banking the rest is relayed. I think I am in Germany today LOL. But as far as passwords there is very little that is not encrypted, and password protected. 512bit RSA is optimal on many of my accesses. Just depends how many more bits into an existing algorithm you are looking for on a nin-ms access point.

I love this stuff actually used to have a career paid to hack and crack encryption. But that was a few years back and CT is getting old LOL

Cybertoad (Disabled) I think password protecting you porn is most likely done, for one reason that is to keep prying eyes of younger people or significant other which I am presuming the question was pertaining to. I do however think that average users without these issues will have no need to password protect this stuff. As I put I think people should be more concerned on how people are accessing their PC from outside the home then in. It is a falsehood that people think your ISP will keep you safe, you do not need to be infected with virus or have malware to get access to your stuff. The fact of the matter is most people won't bother with your stuff two reason. No notoriety and two no gain and no fun.
So unless your famous or have allot of cash probably pretty safe for the most part except for the teenager down the street that wants to bruteforce your wifi LOL cause he heard you have 40tb of porn on your pc LOL

messmer (137) REPLY TO #6 - Denner :

You get a program called True Crypt, Denner. The learning curve is not too steep because even I learned to use it and it would be hard to crack if you use a "smart" enough password and not the usual easy to guess stuff. The nice thing is that if anyone should click on your porn external hard drive they would see nothing but an empty drive that needs to be formatted.

PS. Sorry, I didn't realize you said "desk" rather than drive. Forget what I wrote, friend.

gaypornolover (38) No-one else uses my computer so I don't see the need.

Marcus (47) Nope, nobody else uses my computer, and I guess most passwords can easily be hacked if people are really that desperate to get onto my computer which has nothing particularly of interest to anyone on anyway.

turboshaft (24) REPLY TO #9 - messmer :

But would someone still be able to reformat the drive without your True Crypt password?

(Sorry, but I just gotta up the paranoia ante--you can never be too careful!)

Toadsith (48) REPLY TO #12 - turboshaft :

Yes they could. True Crypt only makes it near impossible to access the data, protecting the drive from destruction would be best done by storing it in a lockable fire safe. You can use True Crypt to make the drive look empty. It is called a "hidden volume", basically you have a secret format underneath the format, it hides in the empty space on the drive. As long as you don't fill the drive up, the hidden data is safe. It is a pretty impressive program.

otoh (54) Depends what you mean by password protected - my password is required to get into my computer, but the whole drive isn't encrypted. As something of a conspiracy theorist I'm tempted to do so... but also seen such drives become unrecoverable after encrypting so am on the fence.

I do have an encrypted partition for passwords and other sensitive stuff... but don't bother encrypting the external drive I keep my smut on.

Cybertoad (Disabled) REPLY TO #14 - Toadsith :

The way the hard drives are encrypted is because of the format itself.
By design then obviously a non formatted drive could not hold windows accessible data. And would defeat the purpose. Formatting a drive that has installed encrypted software would remove all operational events removing the installed program.

And option to the very serious paranoid is a switched drive were as the drive is disabled in the bios and needs to be reactivated or by and actual hidden switch. Kinda like turning on an eternal drive but have one inside controlled by a switch. I have seen people use the extra CD drive and use that button. Looks like and extra cd but in reality the cd button activates the drive. And most people will use the top dvd drive not the cd drive under it. one push and walla you can activate one or several drives dormant in your case. So even if one peaks at your bios the drives are not there. Lots of ways to hide your stuff.
You can also put tin foil on your windows and surveillance cameras
around the property parameter and have armed security guards with dogs too.

Absolutely. It shows as an empty drive unless you clicked on True Crypt and mounted the drive as a volume. And this "empty" drive can easily be formatted by your Operating System.

BadMrFrosty (56) Nope, I have nothing to hide from the people I respect and/or love. Anyone else has no business looking at what I do in my free time.

marcdc1 (174) I use a laptop so (what little is on there) is encrypted. I don't encrypt the external drive. Although it may be time to do that. (my kids are getting older)
