Video of the Week – Forgot Password

String Around FingerA few days ago @joeklein tweeted this video titled “Forgot Password.” Yeah, it’s a comedy routine but it does provide a good perspective on how average people view all those complex passwords and other authentication rigmaroles we force upon them.

The timing was right too as it goes along nicely with our recent “stop blaming users for choosing dumb passwords” article.
