Hello everybody I am here to write about my achievement 2 on steem basic security.

According to my own understanding, security is any protection of any kind to keep you or any of your valuable incomes save or secure from the wicked.

I hope that with this we understand the reason while we should keep our valuable materials save from the scammer, such as our steemit keys.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY STEEMIT KEYS

And to keep your account save you need to keep this keys save in order to avoid loss, for if you the owner losses your keys your account is lossed in did.

FUNCTION OF THE KEYS

MASTER KEY: This key control all the keys of your account including the owner key, of which your account is in risk if someone has access to it.

POSTING KEYS: This key works like it name it is use to post, resteem, vote, follow or mute, comment and edit.

ACTIVE KEY: I see this key as one of the best key, for it's use to power up/down, convert steem dollar to steem, transfer funds and to place market order, vote for witnesses and update profile details.

OWNER KEY: This is the key we use at the wanted time for it changes any key of an account including the key itself, if am to say, I will say is better we store it offline and only use it to recover lost account.

MEMO KEY: This is the key we use for encrypting and decrypting memo when transferring funds.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MASTER KEY AND OWNER KEY
