My question is, which method is safer from possible hackers?
The reason I ask, is because I noticed there are several videos on youtube explaining how easy it is to hack someones password they've set up through a webhost.
I'd think that the webhost would be easier
But either way, try to make your password difficult to guess
I've known of cracking programs that try a list of common words
So as long as it is difficult, your password protection should be fine.
If it was me, I'd trust adobe over my webhost
Or you could go all out and put passwords on both
