The results of the LastPass Sharing Survey are in, and it’s official: We’re all sharing passwords, and we aren’t doing it very safely. In fact, 95% of people share up to 6 passwords with others, including financial, business, social media, and entertainment passwords, despite the majority of people acknowledging that it’s risky to share passwords. Most shockingly, only 19% of respondents say they don’t share passwords that would jeopardize their identity or financial information, leaving 81% of people who would share those passwords.
If the reality is that we need to share passwords, then how are we to share them safely with others and keep our passwords secure? We surveyed over 1,000 US consumers to understand the full extent of how people share passwords and what it means for our online security.
