    finding passwords is easy in some browsers

    See this article Do you save passwords in Chrome? Maybe you should reconsider.

    Ultimately, the first rule of security is that if you lose physical control of your PC you have no security.

    Also posted by Rui on https://windowssecrets.com/forums/sho...ld-think-twice. However, hasn't this been the case for, well, years? I'm pretty sure it's been the case on FF since at least V3.

    As you say Joe, security should start well before anyone can get to your browsers.
