This is something I’ve thought about a number of times (coincidentally; each time I proceed to login to my online banking service), but only until a conversation broke out about it in the work lunchroom was I prompted to blog it.
When you think of online banking one of the first things most of us focus on is security. Now, why is it that some of these systems are still stuck on enforcing a 4-digit numeric password?
No really, would it not be a priority for banks to step up and enforce a strict password policy that requires strong passwords? Oh right, and 4-digit numeric passwords are not exactly of the strong type.
Say no to 4-digit bank passwords!
