Richard Robibero, ABR, SRS it is always a good idea to keep it under lock and key! 

And I do not think the CRM company is going to steal my data....

No I don't keep private information in my files so I have not worries. I stay out of the loop and let the clients deal directly with the closer or lender when it comes to secured information.

Nope, not at all.  I figure any service will use the data they have access to.  I'd be more worried about all the free electronic medical record sites for doctors to get in compliance with obamacare

You can count on every crm keeping the info for later use, afterall, there are no laws against it and there is money to be made. Plus, if you use windows 10, every keystroke you make is transmitted to M$ and stored on their servers and is now theirs to use as they see fit.

When you turn on your computer, there is no security.

edit; the info is not being stolen, we are giving it to them
