Password fails, continued.

I’ve noticed that one when registering for my ADT online account. That account allows you to manage your secret passwords, turn off your security system, etc.

These are so common these days that you could probably have a blog dedicated to them alone. It’s annoying when it happens in general, it’s bad when your favorite financial institution does it, but it’s particularly egregious when it’s done by a security company. Even if that security company is in a business of physical security. Perhaps it’s even worse that it’s in that space, since it can mean your personal security is at risk.

Another password FAIL

Another major password FAIL. In fact, it’s not just the passwords, but more or less everything. Brought to you by Tesco.

password schemes

This is well done by Linode. Much better than this stuff that a lot of companies do:

Please select a password that includes a capital letter, a number, no two consecutive letters or numbers or common words, but don’t exceed 7 characters and don’t use any special characters¬†either.
