Password Statistics: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly [Infographic]

August 31, 2015

When was the last time you changed your email password? Your Facebook password? How about your bank account password?

If it's been a while, you may want to take a few minutes and change 'em up. According to a survey of 2,000 people in the U.S. and the U.K., almost three-quarters of consumers use the same exact password for multiple accounts. What's more, a large number of people haven't changed that duplicate password in over five years.

So it should come to no surprise that about 40% of people have had an online account hacked, a password stolen, or were notified their personal information had been compromised. But, although 8 in 10 people say they're concerned about the security of their online accounts, they’re still using weak, old, or repeated passwords that can be easily stolen or hacked.

How can you make sure your online accounts are safe? Check out the infographic below from TeleSign to learn more compelling statistics about password safety, common password mistakes to avoid, and how to protect your online accounts with more than just a password.
