Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.
But it's so hard keeping up with password management.
There are so many shopping sites and apps. We want so many things. We only have so much time and patience.
So surveys regularly show that password habits can be dire. Just look at the most common passwords of 2016 and you'll see that "123456" still reigns. Though "123456789" isn't too far behind.
What, though, might be people's worst password habits? A new survey by tech consultancy EPC Group offers a little window.
More than 37 percent of the 600 people surveyed last month admitted that they change their password only when a site tells them to.
Eleven percent of those polled said they've used to same password (or a variation of it) for at least seven years.
I'm a touch surprised that this number is so low. Perhaps people are beginning to take notice. Perhaps news of hacks and cyberattacks are getting some to pay attention.
Perhaps some have even read CNET's fine guide to password management and why it's important.
Still, wandering through the data in this survey, I can't help marveling at humanity.
Men, for example, are 2.8 times more likely to use the word "password" as their password. Women showed a slightly different tendency. They are 1.3 times more likely to use their lover's name in their password.
