Password strength diagram – not for rookies


Forevergeek has showcased an amusing diagram for choosing password strength.

Visit their article for an explanation of that gert big unbreakable one.

This diagram begs a couple of questions though:

i) do people really still use passwords like ‘password’, ‘access’, ‘secret’ and ‘12345’?

and

ii) who decided on the computer-using-persons range:

teens> douche> geek> nature lover> professional> ‘normal’ ?

No silver surfers? No brats? No rookies? No chavs?

Admittedly a world devoid of chavs would be an improvement, but you can’t have everything in life including, it seems, a representational educational diagram.Rookies, however, would likely be the most in line to benefit from such a diagram and their exclusion must have left the feeling adrift. Where to place oneself? Am I a geek? Am I… Normal?

    Another Charlie Brooker number! :)

  2. That’s an amusing article, Mr Brooker has an acerbic tongue – I like it;):-
