Is 2021 the last call for Change Your Password Day?
A recent Dell Technologies Brain on Tech study found when people were tasked with logging into a computer with a long, difficult password, their stress not only increased by 31% within 5 seconds, but it continued to rise even after successfully logging in. Password stress goes hand in hand with a growing appetite for biometrics on devices. Dave Konetski, VP/Fellow of Dell Technologies Client Solutions Group, believes that as technologies like fingerprint readers and facial recognition continue to gain popularity, "this year’s Change Your Password Day may mark a shift or perhaps a beginning to the end of passwords as we know it."
