Re: Changed, not changed
It's pretty amazing that at this point in the internet's life that people still don't use decent password protections. It's the kind of thing they made fun of in '90s movies.

It's almost as if the ease of use with which modern computing allows, is making it all too simple. What would be the best way to encourage better password use among business users and the general public?

High incidences of password reuse aren't just an IT statistic, the threat is real. I see password reuse all the time in my sector. The problem continues to be the need to set a password for virtually every service used. Sometimes, the hassle of resetting passwords is enough to deter folks from creating unique passwords for every system.
