This subject of storing keys correctly happened to my dad a week a ago when his computer broke and he could not use it he had saved his keys on a usb stick which meaned he could still use his steemit account. When i got my account a few days back i saved my keys ion a stick as well plus i emailed them to my gmail account. Dad took them to work and printed them out

If Dads steemit keys were not saved he would have lost access to his account so that was a good understanding of why i need to save my keys in a safe place.

For this we have to answer some questions about keys
