  1. Eric says:

    First question wasn't clear if you meant where the data is stored in it's encrypted form, or where the encryption process takes place. Video from the video, it could be either.

  2. serbul says:

    last question isn't clear either. Does "get rid" mean "just smash it" or "deauthorize in SO". I guess 1st.

  3. Keith says:

    Don't over think the questions. These are not meant to trick you. The purpose is to educate you on the features. So if you catch yourself thinking, "Well this is a trick question?" Stop! Think, what is the intent of SO university? To educate, so the answer to the quiz questions is the simplest one!

  4. 100% secure says:

    You said
    "- your data is 100% secure"

    100% secure – as in the above image linked.

    Surprised you deleted all the old comments.

    The truth is that while 100% security is not possible, this is still your official tip and advertisement from tips !

    Whether or not it is fair in a quiz – well of course, then the question should not have been there …

    I think you owe us quiz attendants an apology or the space bonus.
