Today is World Password Day, a holiday that’s here to remind us that our privacy is as safe as we make it be.
The day was first created by Intel Security and support for the idea has picked up. There are currently some 170 organizations, including Toshiba, Dell and Microsoft, and they’re asking Internet users to make sure that they change their passwords.
The concept came as Intel was thinking about a security education program. It’s not exactly a secret that people don’t change their passwords as the years go by, even though servers may fall prey to hackers and data can be stolen.
