How many times have you opened a new app and typed the same password you’ve had since forever? And if it doesn’t accept it, you say, “Ok, I’ll add a 1 on the end. A capital letter? Fine. Now it wants to recommend a password too? How on earth will I remember that nonsense! I’ll have to get it tattooed on my arm.”
This rigmarole may seem like someone’s testing your limits, but password protection isn’t there to annoy you – it’s there to protect your data and personal information.
