    whats wrong with a pen and paper????? stick envelope in your undie draw with serial numbers in it,write them in back of a book thats in the book shelf.
    poking them in the internet no matter how supposedly secure is just ..well dumb...its an unnecessary risk no matter how small.
    I'll tell you right now, SHA256 encryption is a million times more secure than any of the locations you've named.

    i dont put any info online or in "the cloud", remember if hackers could almost destroy sony they would have no problems finding other info
    No such thing as hiding files on a computer. If you're looking for something, you don't click around looking for it.
    Only real solution is encryption.

    yes you may be correct BUT some little arsehole will have to be inside my house to look in my undie drawer or my book shelf to find my list of serial numbers...if they are inside my house they will pretty much already know I have bangsticks stored somewhere..... however some squinty eyed computer geek who cracks that data base will be able to find out not only that you have but will a small amount of digging what you have.....cause I cant see you having a list of numbers without reference to which they belong to.
    this is no different to the polic data base that has been cracked more than once,so the guys with MSSA or handguns not only have list of what is there but also security requirements ay address......Ive spoken to a chap who was going through border crossing in the states and the guard came out from checking his details and asked him how he found his handgun!!!!,the guard happened to have one on his hip at the time so was interested...... all that info was there for the looking!!!!

    Should a crook want a gun I very much doubt they are that sophisticated. They don't need to be. In an age where I can buy my groceries with a swipe of my phone and access my entire business via any PC I doubt there is sufficient risk anyone with the intellect or desire gives a shit about my 243 or washer/drier.

    They need to take salemanship lessons then and update their blurb to change this "How secure is this website? We have 128-bit SSL encryption to keep your information secure."

    Sounds like exactly the right thing to say to put any would-be crackers on the wrong track

    Wasn't even talking about snap. But turns out they do anyway.

    Encrypt it yourself was my suggestion.
