Study: Password Security Improves with Age
Baby Boomers may not be perceived as tech savvy as Millenials, but
they apparently are better at protecting their digital assets. A new
British study believed to be the largest of its kind shows those 55 and
older tend to pick passwords with twice the strength of those under 25.
It also indicates those who prefer to use German and Korean languages
chose the strongest passwords; Indonesian speakers, the weakest.
that's still not saying much since weak passwords were prevalant across
every demographic from a data set that included 70 million anonymized
Yahoo accounts analyzed with the Internet giant's permission.
find surprisingly little variation in guessing difficulty; every

distribution," wrote computer science researcher Joseph Bonneau of the
University of Cambridge in an abstract.
