switching back to paper statements?

With all these sites getting hacked is anyone switching back to getting paper statements? It seems like none of these hackerrs actually changed data but does anyone think it is a risk?

I'm sticking with paperless.  The statement is online regardless in my experience.

If I can have my social security card sent to me via email, I'd sign-up.  I do not like receiving anything via turtle mail.

I think I will just save copies on my pc, I would hate to get all the mail again, the only reason I asked is because I was listening to Clark Howard and he sugested it

The more knowledgeable a person is about identity theft lessens the fear of it.

His main concern was if funds go missing it would be easier to prove with paper statements but I think as long as you have a soft copy no worries
