Here’s a little sensationalist news about a poll that suggests a third of people admit to having password rage: https://www.information-age.com/do-you-have-password-rage-third-people-admit-tantrums-over-password-frustration-123459599/

“Also, the passwords for our site that you will visit once every two years have to be exactly 16 characters long and must include an *, the word ‘bun,’ and an emoji of a kind of fruit.

Obviously, you can’t re-use a password that you’ve used in the past 35 years, since the consequences of someone fraudulently looking at our collection of Angry Birds fan art are too horrible to contemplate.”
Talking of password resets, don’t they essentially make a farce of the password anyway? My emails load automatically when I start my browser so if you have the device…
Lee Evans does well here at conveying the frustration of forgetting passwords!
