My next computer security video will cover personal password management. In anticipation of that I decided to do an anonymous survey to see how folks manage their passwords. I don't claim that it's statistically accurate or that it reveals anything conclusive. It's a sampling of people from Facebook, Twitter, and work.
49 people from all over the place took the survey.
When asked to rate themselves on their management of passwords:
6% said less than OK
49% said OK
45% said better than OK
When asked about their approach to using passwords:
57% said they use a different password for each class of service (one for commerce, one for banking, one for social services, etc.).
24% said they use a unique password for each service.
19% said they use the same password for everything.
