How do I keep my emergency records private


It's important to keep the data in Emergency Records Organizer secure. Three levels of security protect your personal information. Choose the level that best suits your needs.

  • Basic
    Store your documents and printouts of your Emergency Records Organizer information in a locked, fireproof container. Store other documents such as wills, stock certificates, and so on, in a safe deposit box.

    Always make a backup copy of your Quicken data and store the backup disk in a safe location.
  • Moderate
    Assign a password to the Quicken data file.

    Assigning a password prevents unauthorized use of all your Quicken data, including your Emergency Records Organizer information. Be sure to store your password in a safe place and inform at least one other person in your household where he or she can find the password in case of an emergency.
  • High
    If you are concerned that your Emergency Records Organizer information is in the same place as your Quicken data, you can protect your data further.


    1. Create a new Quicken data file that contains only Emergency Records Organizer information. When you create a Quicken data file, you must create an account—but you can leave it empty.

    2. In the new Quicken data file, enter only your Emergency Records Organizer data.

    3. Assign a password to the new Quicken data file.

    4. Back up your Emergency Records Organizer data file.

    5. As a final security measure, delete the new Quicken data file from your hard disk. Now, your Emergency Records Organizer data is completely isolated from your Quicken data.
