This subject of storing keys correctly happened to my dad a week a ago when his computer broke and he could not use it he had saved his keys on a usb stick which meaned he could still use his steemit account. When i got my account a few days back i saved my keys ion a stick as well plus i emailed them to my gmail account. Dad took them to work and printed them out

If Dads steemit keys were not saved he would have lost access to his account so that was a good understanding of why i need to save my keys in a safe place.
For this we have to answer some questions about keys
Have you retrieve all your keys on steemit?
A : - retrieve keys when account is created and save them like i did
Do i know each of these key functions and restrictions?
A : - some are used for different levels of account security
How do you plan to keep your master password?
A : - this is an important master password. i saved my master password in 3 other places not on steemit
Do you know how to send my steem token to another steem user account?
A :- Yes I know that how to transfer my steem token to another steem user account there is a transfer button
Do you know how to power up your STEEM?
A :- i have been shown how to power up steem, when i got my account dad sent me some steem and showed me how to power itup
The first and most used key type, used for posting placing votes and making comments.
This key is used for transferring $ which is steem power
This key used to read/create memos, used for Private messages.
Owner Key :
This is the most important Permission key apart my my Master Password. this can change everything relasted to your steemit account
With that Password you have the most control over my account
at least if my computer breaks i will still have my keys
