You Use the Same Password for Everything?
According to Ofcom’s “Adults’ Media Use and Attitudes Report 2013”, 55 per cent of the 1,805 adults polled in the United Kingdom used the same password for most – if not all – of their website accounts. They use the same password their online banking, Facebook, Tumblr, online shopping, and well … everything else!
Why Using One Password is Bad
Yes, it certainly is easier to just use one password. It’ll get you into your bank account, Facebook, and everywhere else you go online. However, there are some major drawbacks.
While it is convenient having one key – the same password – to open all of your accounts, it also means that in the wrong hands it is the key to your digital kingdom. If hackers and cyber criminals swipe your one and only password, they can access your bank account, credit card account, and personal information from social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Personal information can be used for identity theft and other fraud attempts.
Cyber criminals and hackers know that if you use a password for a social networking sites or websites with little security, you might also use it on banking and other more secure websites. There have been news reports about how websites like LinkedIn, Yahoo, and Twitter have been compromised and passwords stolen. If it happened to these major websites, passwords certainly have been swiped from smaller websites as well. If these passwords give criminals access to all of your accounts, they could come away with money, ammunition for fraud, and confidential info.
