One-Third Use a Single Password for Everything

One-Third Use a Single Password for Everything - PC World: "A third of web users have admitted to using the same password for a number of different websites, says Sophos.

According to the security firm, just 19 percent never use the same password twice. Sophos added that three years ago, 41 percent of web users said they used the same password, indicating that just 8 percent of web users have realized the importance of strong, unique passwords."
