re-use passwords - busted
In my defence the really important sites like my bank are protected with 15 character passwords generated by BitWarden, but the sites like theReg and BBC where I don't give a toss whether someone impersonates me, get the basic password I have used for years which itself is 8 characters with all the bells and whistles. But re-used on all the lesser websites.
These kind of articles are only useful for drumming up business for the password app vendors and I guess giving the rest of us an opportunity to feel smug. We started this saga with passwords of 5 - 6 characters then had to add in upper case and numbers, then special characters and the length has increased each year.
I agree passwords are so 20th century and for god sake lets come up with a better solution soon before we are all having to enter 99 character passwords to access the local news.
