Our dad used to be a teacher at and later the principal of a technical school here in Austria. He always used the password “work” for all his computer stuff at school and said it was probably the safest password to have, because it’s a word that none of his students has ever heard of.

I guess now you can guess where my brother and I got our sense of humor from!

Nowadays, of course, you wouldn’t get away with a password like that, because the software forces you to choose a word that’s at least 30 characters long and contains at least a capital letter, a number, a special character and the name of an Sumerian god.
