How would you safely dispose of a computer, so that sensitive material, such as banking information, doesn't fall into the wrong hands ? If the computer has a password can its information still be accessed by someone ? Right now it is just in storage in my buildings locker where I live. What if I just placed it beside the garbage room, could someone take it and get into the computer without knowing its password ? In the past I just physically dismantled my old computers in the basement of my house but I live in an apartment building now and don't know what to do with it ? What would you suggest ?
