Password IQ Test Website Launched to Raise Password Safety Awareness
mSeven Software releases Password IQ Test to mark upcoming “Universal Change Your Password Day,” February 1.
Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
To promote password safety on “Universal Change your Password Day” (February 1st), mSeven Software has launched PasswordIQTest.com as a public service website. Visitors take a simple True/False 8-question test that illustrate basic password safety concepts to become a Password Master. After the test, they can sign up to win a “Password Master” T-Shirt and get a 50% discount on the mSecure Password Manager for Windows or Mac. Those who do not win a “Password Master” T-shirt can still purchase an “I´m a Password Master” T-shirt from the website.
While online visitors may have dozens, if not hundreds, of website accounts, a recent industry study showed that more than 70% will use the same two-to-four passwords across all of their accounts. It is no wonder that more than 15 million became identity theft victims in 2012 and damage exceeded $50 billion and priceless misery.
Several simple concepts can increase the chances of becoming a Password Master when taking the Password IQ Test:
- Create different passwords for each account.
- Use strong passwords that are unguessable
- Change your password occasionally (monthly or quarterly).
- Trash those sticky notes and seek a password manager solution.
“Many people like IQ tests, PasswordIQTest.com is a fun and educational way to learn about password safety.” said Ray Marshall, founder and CEO of mSeven Software. “With identity theft impacting millions each year and an ever-increasing number of passwords being stolen from high-profile Web sites, password safety has become more important than ever.”
