‘Security Fatigue’ Leading Computer Users to More or Less Just Give Up (Naked Security)


Do you use the same password for multiple sites?

Do your eyes glaze over after sites like LinkedIn or Yahoo get massively hacked and, like clockwork, the security wonks come wagging their fingers at you for reusing your passwords?

Do you shrug and say “Hey, it’s not my job to keep those sites from getting turned upside down and shaken by their ankles until all the data tumbles out – it’s theirs!

If any of that rings a bell, you’re not alone.

Either you need to take a nap, and/or the people who write security warnings need to figure out how to make it all simpler for users, because many of us are suffering from a common malady called security fatigue.
