Windows 7: PC Security.

I have all Designer Media forums set to remember me; I usually have all of them open all the time my rig is on, I see it unnecessary to log out late at night, sleep and first thing next morning manually log in again. it's easier for me just to turn computer on and log in to Windows, then open the browser with these 5 preset home pages already logged in to each and everyone.

I am not so much worried about credentials for websites and such as I have a strong Windows password and Windows is set to lock after 5 minutes inactivity. If someone can crack his way in to my Windows, he has deserved the right to see my stuff .

I do the same Kari, I like the convenience of clicking the shortcut and being logged into the DM forums. Of course for email, banking, sites I pay too gas, power, I log in each visit.

Yes, I draw the line there, too; banking and sensitive sites, basically any https site I do not save credentials and use two step verification when available.

But here the worst thing that could happen would be someone accessing my UserCP and dollyfying me (those who know what it means know, those who don't know have no need to know) or posting as me some stupid stuff. In both cases no one would notice the difference .
