Remember, You're Not Only Naming Your Pet, You're Also Securing Your Digital Future

Dan Piraro, the creator of Bizarro Comics, pretty much nails it on the head when it comes to choosing a name for your dog or cat these days. Because you're not just naming your companion, you're also choosing a security question or even a password that you hope will thwart would-be hackers.

So maybe R0v3r, 5p0t, or even Old Y3773r might be better alternatives. [Bizarro Blog via Laughing Squid]

    No way in hell am I using "Bob" to secure anything.

    It's a humorous observation, but...
    do people still actually put real answers in those security question fields?
    Security questions that are on the public record (mothers maiden name, prior address, fathers first name, etc), or something you would not consider secret if a stranger asked ("cute dog, what's it's name?"), make for seriously flawed identity confirmation tests.

      That explains why on the day I lost all my online password, I suddenly recall a strangely clothed man from a DeLorean asking that question while I was walking my dog when I was a little kid.

    when I saw the word comic I was expecting laughs however I was sorely disappointed upon reading said "comic"
