Password Statistics: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Curated by Paul Helmick

I’m a Technology CEO and Experienced Entrepreneur. I love helping people use technology to grow their business. 

This is scary

  1. 75% of consumers use the same exact password for multiple accounts
  2. Most people haven’t changed that duplicate password in over five years.

How can you make sure your online accounts are safe?

First, I use LastPass on my phone and computer to keep all of my passwords, unique and strong.  1Password is a highly rated app as well.

Second, for several key services (Gmail, Dropbox, Evernote, and Lastpass), I’ve enabled Two Factor authentication, so someone would have to have my phone to get a text or authenticate even if they hacked my password.
