Do not allow Internet Explorer to store passwords for you
Stored passwords allow anyone who can access your machine to log in to your web accounts as you. In addition, there are numerous utilities that can expose that hidden information and actually reveal the password. If you’ve reused that password for other logins, many systems or web sites could be compromised.
Also, Hidden data can often be found within Microsoft Office documents particularly Word. Whenever you exchange documents with clients, either convert them to PDF format (WYSIWYG) or else run them through Microsoft’s Hidden Data Removal tool.
