They might appear to be the same thing....
security A security (also known as a financial instrument) is a tradable asset of any kind. For questions related to a specific asset class, use a specific tag, e.g. "stock" or "bond".
The securities tag has no usage guidance, can you help us create it?
but some questions are not following that definition of the security tag:
and those are just from the 10 most recent questions.
The issue is how to make sure the questions about protecting money are appropriately tagged.
I'd suggest moving the description of
security to the
securities keyword, as that's exactly what "securities" means, and any other definition would be confusing.
Then add a description to the
security tag, stating that it is for ways of protecting one's assets, whether physically (e.g. bank safe deposit boxes) or financially (e.g. relatively safe, low-risk investments).
(Tags would have to be adjusted on existing questions of course.)
