In the beginng that's all it was, a simple word that we used that allowed us in to various things, but in the years since with growing feuds between different groups of technolgy we have found ourselves resorting to more complex passwords. Often requiring they be at least 8 characters long and in most cases including at least a number and upper-case letter if not special characters. However along has come a new type of secuitry think.
