Chromium on a stick


Hi all,
So, I'd like (for security reasons, read: no traces on the host) to use a portable OS I can plug in, work, unplug and have no traces on the host.
I tried the one Arnold the Bat made ( https://arnoldthebat.co.uk/wordpress/ ) but...how safe is that? Passwordwise, I mean...
Thanks
Melissa

Thanks, I should mark that as the solution!

With anything protected by a password, a good password is essential. Using a passphrase is better, because it's longer. If you use "password1" as your password, your system will not be very secure. A long password using random characters is more secure, but you probably can't remember it. A suitable compromise is using several words.

Puppy will certainly cover more than the basics. But there are also Tails or Heads if you want a bit more.
