Did you observe National Password Day on May 3, 2018? It was an interesting day for password-related news. First, Twitter pushed a password reset for more than 330 million users and took that opportunity to underscore the risks of reusing passwords on multiple sites.
Second, in observation of the day, Nutella tweeted that “Nutella” might be a password that’s easy to remember and close to your heart. This ill-advised comment sent data security experts diving for password checkers like haveibeenpwned.com, which lists 20,833 instances of the chocolate/hazelnut spread’s name on lists of compromised passwords.
