Security Risk as People Use Same Password on All Websites


The research reveals that nearly half (46 percent) of Britons use the same password to login to their banking, shopping and social networking sites with a further 54 percent confessing to using variations of the same password. And with the average person visiting 23 different sites each month that require a login they are an easy target for fraudsters.

This is not really news, but after so many awareness campaigns, warnings, etc. kind of a surprise? Hm… but wait! Perhaps I should now go and changes some of my passwords as well… 😉


Btw., you can test the strength of your passwords here: http://www.microsoft.com/protect/fraud/passwords/checker.aspx
