29. the main point seems to be that passwords ARE good protection, just don't have a silly one

it's the ways to BYPASS the password that seems to be the main problem.

especially when the standard security questions are easily hacked.

if they want to make it easy to bypass a password, at least they should have questions whose answers can't be easily hacked.

name of first pet, or restaurant where you met your spouse, e.g., aren't likely to be easily googled, although even for those a few standard guesses would have a good hit rate.
