Microsoft and various other companies have got it all wrong.  Today the UK Government came out and said that autosave is unsecure; every tech company implementing it since year dot has got it wrong, users don't want autosave!

 

Ian Duncan Smith on the BBC Radio 4 Today show (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qj9z) claimed that autosave is unsecure, that by offering this feature, users could have their accounts hacked and information entered can be cloned.  He also suggested that this was designed by users (from user studies).

 

Sigh...
