Although the very chief of the CIA, David H. Petraus, couldn't keep his emails a secret, Nicole Perlroth of The New York Times has put together this handy little guide on how to keep your secret email exchange from being seen by the wrong set of eyes.
Face it: no matter what you are trying to hide in your e-mail in-box or text message folder -- be it an extramarital affair or company trade secrets -- it is possible that someone will find out. If it involves criminal activity or litigation, the odds increase because the government has search and subpoena powers that can be used to get any and all information, whether it is stored on your computer or, as is more likely these days, stored in the cloud. And lawyers for the other side in a lawsuit can get reams of documents in court-sanctioned discovery.
Still determined? Thought so. You certainly are not alone, as there are legitimate reasons that people want to keep private all types of information and communications that are not suspicious (like the contents of your will, for example, or a chronic illness). In that case, here are your best shots at hiding the skeletons in your digital closet.
