It's 2016 and idiots still use '123456' as their password


Re: Nothing wrong with insecure passwords

it's particularly annoying when some trivial site insists on 87 characters, 13 symbols and no old password reuse, just to protect your my-little-pony updates

The other day, I registered an account with the Met Office.

Minimum 9 characters, at least one capital, one lower-case, one number, and one "special" character (which wasn't defined).

To get a wind forecast...
