No matter how many times we hear of data breaches or how often we are forced to change our passwords, users are generally pretty bad at selecting a decent password. NIST has called it security fatigue and has now recommended that we only change a password when we know it has been compromised AND to use a password that has never been compromised. In 2016, '123456' was the most common password. Pretty sad. EPC Group conducted a survey that found 37 percent of respondents use the same password (or a variant) for at least seven years. Another revelation…men are 2.8 times more likely to use the word 'password' as their password. Let's up the game and at least change that practice.
