We all have troubles with remembering and creating our passwords. There’s a Coordinator of Technologies who says that all of her passwords are the same, but that she changes them monthly. I remember a student telling me that she never bothered to remember her passwords or save them in any way. Instead, she just clicked, “Forgot Password”, and either had it sent to her or created a new one.
So many of the passwords we create are not the most secure. Student passwords are not only often shared but also are easy to figure out. Microsoft has come to the rescue with a new digital tool called Telepathwords. It’s online for anyone to use making it a great resource for teaching about safe passwords. Telepathwords works by having the user start to put in a password, and then, it guesses what you’ll add next.
