What is your favorite Internet password? No really…

A popular travel website has a “secret question” option where you can answer “What is your favorite Internet password?” If you forget your password you’d be prompted with that question.

Please. That is like giving candy to, well anyone who likes candy. In the event of a data breach anyone who answered that has given out the family jewels. You’ll likely not hear about the data breach for a while after it happens and by then the damage could be done.

Save yourself a lot of hassle or worry. Skip down to another “secret question” like your favorite ice cream flavor – or some other factoid that isn’t advertised on your MySpace page. 🙂
