So you really believe your financial and personal information is safe stored on a computer in some corporations headquarter somewhere
Depends on the company. However my information just like your information is already stored on a computer.
Do you have a bank account, credit card, debit, insurance, own property, own a car, registered to vote, have a passport?
FYI nothing is unhackable, just ask Gary McKinnon and by the way if you think that sending cash in the mail is what people do to pay their bills with paper then you're either so young that don't remember what a mailman was or are just being sarcastic.
My point is that the mail system is much less secure than online. I can transfer money online, I can't mail money, well I can but it's against all the suggestions of mail services.
Either way I'm still not joining that paperless club.
Feel free to make your life harder than it needs to be.
McKinnon is under suspicion for hacking into U.S. government computer networks in late 2001 and early 2002, in what's been called a historic breach of security [source: Bingham]. A British court judgment accuses McKinnon of infiltrating 97 computers, installing hacking software, deleting important files and stealing information [source: England and Wales High Court]. He confessed that he left a threatening note on one Army computer, in which he identified himself by the name "SOLO."
McKinnon has admitted to the hacks and said he thought he could find evidence that United States was covering up the existence of UFOs. His case remains ongoing.
Thing is, you need to understand that differance between a government computer, and a government computer that has valueable information on it, and one that has useable information. Stealing an encrypted file is next to worthless.
I would state that most online services have more and better security that most buildings have physical security.
