SECURITY: Don’t reuse passwords

It’s World Password Day

Passwords are in the spotlight today and it’s an important reminder to reconsider our online security routine. Our recent research project, The Psychology of Passwords, shows a startling reality of unsafe online practices. Here’s a little preview of the habits that make hackers very happy:

 59% mostly or always use the same password

 53% have not changed passwords in the last year

 64% want to easily remember their passwords
From this, we’ve learned that consumers are using the same easy-to-remember password for multiple accounts (despite the increase in cybersecurity threats and breaches).

Don’t let yourself be one of these stats – participate in World Password Day! Refresh your passwords today and secure your digital life.
