Watching over your vital info

January 20, 2008|Vani Rangachar

Before a long trip to Asia last month, I jotted in a notebook my credit card numbers, passport number and other info I couldn't afford to lose, then secreted it in my luggage. Not the safest way to go, but then I didn't know about KeepYouSafe.com.

What's hot: You can enter or scan valuable info online, so if your wallet is stolen, you still have access to critical phone and account numbers, without hunting down pieces of paper. The site assures users that data are encrypted and staffers "regularly audit the security of our systems." It notes it won't be able to give out your password if you forget it.

What's not: You have to have Internet access to get the information, and parts of the world are still off the grid. Up to 10 records are free; it's $48 annually to store up to 500 records.
