As a student or employee, you likely forget your password and lose time resetting it. Or you might use the same password for every site, which made you vulnerable this week when hackers stole two million Facebook, Twitter and Gmail passwords.
Last month I wrote about how to create an unhackable but easy-to-remember password.
Microsoft was listening.
To either show you how weak your password is (or to give hackers more ideas), the Microsoft Research team invented Telepathwords. The site’s mandate: “Preventing weak passwords by reading your mind.”
If your password is too common, change it. And if you hate remembering different ones, I recommend (again) the base + modifier system.
