Happy World Password Day!
To celebrate the importance of healthy password practices, we’d like to highlight a World Wide Survey performed by LastPass which reported some statistics about password behaviors across the globe that are worthy of attention. If security seems important to you then read on:
Here are some of the most important takeaways:
- 44% of respondents use the same or similar passwords despite knowing this could increase their personal security risks.
- 53% of respondents haven’t changed their password in the last 12 months even after hearing about a breach in the news.
- 41% of respondents think their accounts aren’t valuable enough to be worth a hacker’s time.
Psychology of Passwords
As more and more of us work and socialize online, protecting our digital identity is more important than ever. AlpineWeb has always encouraged the use of a Best Practices approach especially when it comes to security. One of the most fundamental security practices is the use of strong passwords.
Can you memorize unique, strong passwords for all of your email and online accounts? Neither can we, too many accounts to remember them all. Using the same password for multiple accounts seems convenient but really puts you at more risk.
So what is the solution?
We’ve been using LastPass for password management for many years and haven’t looked back. LastPass provides a secure, feature rich application that makes managing passwords easy. We highly recommend LastPass.
