My password is...

London

— Ninety per cent of office workers will easily give up their computer passwords according to a recent survey conducted for Infosecurity Europe 2003. Workers were asked a series of questions which included “What is your password?”, to which 75 per cent immediately gave their password. If they initially refused they were asked which category their password fell into and then asked a further question to find out the password. Another 15 per cent then revealed their passwords.
