How Secure is Your Password?
In today’s digital world passwords are the keys to several things including your identity, personal information and finances. Having a simple password is like giving the keys to your home to a perfect stranger. According to a recent British study, passwords are usually obvious: “around 50 percent of computer users select passwords based on names of a family member, spouse, partner, or a pet. Many users face the problem of selecting strong passwords that meet corporate security requirements. Too often, systems reject user-selected passwords because they are not long enough or otherwise do not meet complexity requirements.” For most users, the solution is an easy password that follows a simple pattern. One way to create a password is by using a pattern that only you know.
