The Reality of Password Sharing
The most frequently shared passwords are to our Wi-Fi, TV or Movie streaming, financial accounts, email accounts or our social media networks. These passwords are being shared via text, email, pen and paper or verbally and 73%* of people most likely won’t reset their password after sharing it with someone.
27%* believe that sharing passwords is not risky, with 70%* of those saying it’s because they shared it with someone they trust!
Even more vulnerable are those who have made the mistake of using the same password on more than one website, as this leaves you open to being hacked. Every website where you have used the same or similar password is also out there for the taking.
