Research shows that consumers have an average of 26 different online logins but only use five different passwords. With so much of our lives online, consumers that reuse passwords put themselves at a higher risk for exposure. If a thief somehow gains access to one account, he or she could easily get into any other account that shares the same login information.
Many people over-expose their personal information without thinking about it. The next time you are in one of these situations, be sure to consider your identity and how to protect it.
