"38 percent of people think it sounds more appealing to tackle household chores – from folding the laundry to scrubbing toilets – than to try and come up with another new user name or password."


Portland, OR – August 23, 2012 – According to the results of the 2012 Online Registration and Password study released today by Janrain and conducted online by Harris Interactive, 58 percent of online adults have five or more unique passwords associated with their online logins and 30 percent of people have more than 10 unique passwords they need to remember. 38 percent of people think it sounds more appealing to tackle household chores – from folding the laundry to scrubbing toilets – than to try and come up with another new user name or password. Janrain commissioned Harris Interactive to field the study, which was conducted online between July 20-24, 2012 among a nationwide cross section of 2,208 adults.

“With all of the different websites consumers login to on a regular basis – from email and social networks to online banking and ecommerce sites – it’s no wonder people are struggling to remember such a large number of passwords,” said Larry Drebes, CEO of Janrain. “What’s surprising is that consumers think cleaning their bathroom, or in the extreme cases trying to solve world peace, sounds preferable to adding yet another password to the list...........”
