Matt's answer:

MATT CUTTS: Ho, ho, ho! Happy holidays. I just wanted to give you your annual holiday guilt trip to remind you, if you could install Chrome, next year, you won’t be cleaning malware off your in-laws’ home computer. The other thing you might want to think about is two-factor authentication. That way, whenever your friend or relative gets their email account hijacked, it won’t affect you. And finally, you might want to think about doing backups. I know it’s a little early for New Year’s resolutions, but if you can have the 3-2-1 system of backups, where you have three copies, two of them are something, one of them is off-site– anyway, make backups. It’s really important that you not have your data in one place where a fire, or a bullet, or an earthquake, or a squid, a giant dinosaur, anything like that can bring down your data. So be safe out there. Have good holidays.
