How to Protect Yourself From Password Reuse

One of the most popular threats and serious vulnerabilities – is not related at all to software or applications, but rather human beings and our habits: password reuse. 

 

Password reuse is a problem when people have to remember complicated passwords for every single service they use. But, let’s be honest, we usually use the same password on multiple accounts, apps, and even social networks. It’s true, we are not machines and it’s hard to remember dozens or even hundreds of characters combinations for every account.

 

But the deal is related to cybersecurity. And protecting your online credentials is just as important as keeping your documents or funds in a safe place. Let’s check out this manual to learn more about using the same password for multiple accounts, password reuse statistics, and learn how to avoid password reuse and keep your sensitive data protected. 

How to Check Reused Passwords in Security Dashboard

1. Firstly, download Passwarden on the device you use. Passwarden supports a large number of platforms. The full list of gadgets available can be found here

2. Then log in to the app using your KeepSolid ID. If you authorize for the first time, create a new KeepSolid ID. Then, create a Master Password.

 

Note: This is the main password you will use to enter your Passwarden account. Don’t forget to save a Recovery Key. It will help you not to lose access to your items and Vaults and not to become an example of negative password reuse statistics. 

3. You can find the Security Dashboard menu on your screen. You can check out all the security statistics of your accounts. Go to this menu and follow the Reused Passwords category. 

4. Now you see all the items that require your attention. A message on the top informs that these passwords have to be changed to something unique.  

5. You can easily change your password in this window. You are free to create it on your own or use our password generator. You don’t have to remember this combination of characters, our password manager will do it for you. So choose some strong passwords to keep items in security.

Why using the same password for multiple accounts is not safe 

Using the same password for more than one account is like having one key to unlock every door you use. If a cybercriminal steals or copies the key, every door is vulnerable. In the world of cybersecurity, it can lead to disastrous consequences. Nobody wants to lose access to his online banking, financial services, or entertainment accounts. 

 

If hackers get your password on one site, they will use this information to log in to your other accounts. This procedure will continue until they get your online bank credentials. And according to statistics, without good protection, this chain breach will not take them much time. Every time you reuse a password in any online service, you risk being a chain breach victim.

 

Brief Password Reuse Statistics

  • According to Google statistics, 65% of people have reused passwords on multiple sites.
  • 91% of respondents claim to understand the risks of reusing passwords on different accounts, but 59% admitted to doing it anyway.
  • Microsoft statistics show that 44 million accounts were vulnerable to account breaches due to compromised or stolen passwords.
  • The average netizen reuses each password at least 14 times.
  • 72% of users have reused business passwords and nearly half (49%) of employees just add a digit or character to their password every 90 days. It should be admitted that this is not the best practice as well.
  • Compromised passwords are responsible for 81% of hacking-related breaches, according to the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report statistics.
