Got a Bad Case of Password Exhaustion?
You?re not alone! Most people use the same password everywhere ? home, work, Gmail, Facebook? even for banking.
Considering how many passwords we?re expected to remember and use on a daily basis, password exhaustion is a very real thing. It?s no wonder that when yet another prompt for a password appears, users enter easily guessed combinations like ?abcd? or ?password?.
Trouble is, even if your password is making the required effort, hackers are taking a daily stroll around the internet and collecting logins and passwords as they go, from either leaked details or sites with security flaws.
Then, they?ll try their luck with that login/password set elsewhere. They know more than half the internet users in the world have only one password and email combination, so the chance of gaining access to your accounts is actually quite high.
