Forbes Advisor recently published a report on America’s Password Habits, based on a survey of 2,000 individuals conducted by OnePoll. The findings revealed that 46% of respondents had their passwords stolen in the past year, with 68% needing to change their passwords across multiple accounts due to compromise.
