Okay, so I'm fairly new to c++ programming. For practice, I wanted to create a program to store my data (like passwords and such) but I'm not sure how to go about making that data secure..
Obviously the program itself will prompt the user for a password at the start. If I store the data in a text file, then someone could easily just open it and read it. If I store the information in variables, how will I add new information while the program runs, rather than editing the source code?
I'm just gonna go out on a limb here and assume this is a very dumb question so thanks in advance for your patience
