How can I protect all the secret watchtower books and elder letters on my tablet?

    I have a ton of secret watchtower info stored on my tablet. Is there any way with my tablet locked with a password, can someone do a factory reset on it so I lose all my pdf files? The BOE at hubbys hall are aware I am in possession of secret crap from the watchtower. This is now the only password that my hubby does not have. I am afraid he may take it to the elders if requested to. I try and keep it with me at all times howevera few times I have forgotten it while hubby is at home and I am shopping or something else. Is there anything else I can do to protect my files?

    Save the files to the cloud

    cantleave... I have no idea what the cloud is. I consider myself technology challanged. I haven't figured out how to cut and paste on this thing yet. I've had it 2 years. I have an Acer Iconia Tab. Can you help me? I'll need very detailed instructions.

    There is probably about 50 different ways of doing this. But here is a simple one.

    1 - go to and create an account

    2 - using your computer login to that account and upload all of those files

    3 - Using your IPAD go to the app store and download the dropbox app

    4 - Using your IPAD open the dropbox app and log in and see the files

    Even if someone can log into your IPAD they wont have access to the drobox account unless they log in there. That is two layers of protection. If someone restores your IPAD, you just have to download the APP again and login.

    Ditto- DROPBOX, easy to use and password protected if you choose.

    That sounds like the most logical approach to secure those files that you want to keep perfectly private.

    Any file that you think might become objective to your twit of a husband, just keep on a public server like Drop box

    or google cloud, once they are of course remember to remove those files from your Tablet.

    What an absurdity though having to hide information because it endangers some men's power and control.

    Hi KariOtt, DITTO use dropbox by clicking on the following link: You can password protect the information and send links to other people to share the information with them.

    Peace be with you and everyone, who you love,

    Good general rule: if you don't know how to protect yourself on the technology you are using, then don't use that technology. LOL.

    Having the long game in mind, I took the opposite approach with my JW husband. I have now become the trusted source for materials hubby can't get through normal channels. I let him know what releases are coming up at the next convention, and I give him the answer key to the TMS review. He gets the KM at the same time as the elders, so now has a leg up on which book will be studied next. He won't breathe a word, of course.

    I make sure he knows that all these benefits are thanks to the hard work of apostates everywhere.

    Thank you everyone. If I have any problems I'll post for help again. You guys are awsome.

    look at programs like Folder Guard. NOt sure if it's available for a tablet.

    Change the text to the color WHITE.

    When you want to read the files use CONTROL + A on this page.

    On the rest of this line I will demonstrate.Use CTRL+A: This is an example of white text which is normally hidden. Ends here.

    Could you use a memory stick with your tablet? Transfer the files and then wipe them off your tablet. Hide the memory stick somewhere safe to use when you want.

    I would password protect a flash drive even. Here's free software and a tutorial on how to encrypt and password protect files wherever they are:

  • GonzoX

    Backup your data to a flash drive.

    Backup to a CD or DVD.

    If you have a trust worthy freind have them also keep a backup copy.

    Use cloud storage.

  • KariOtt

    Thanks again everyone for all your help and suggestions. I don't want to delete the files after I have secured their safety. If for some reason they do get a hold of my tablet and remove the files I will be the first to inform them that They didn't win that I have them backed up in a secure location. I plan to put them on cloud and or dropbox plus on a couple of flash drives and mail them to my dad and a really good friend. Since my hubby has my password for this site I hope he checks my posts or the elders have a lookie lou at what I've posted, see this thread and freak out at the fact that there will be several ways they wont be able to take the files away from me.

    Elders are paper tigers. Their only hold is what Witnesses give them. As a woman and a non-witness, you have as much status as the scrapings on their shoe. They may "give a good witness" by being friendly to your face but if you try and have an intelligent conversation with one you will be given about as much attention as a cuckoo clock. See, they think you are hop
