Harris poll backs Google plan to improve password security

"Google’s new security feature echoes those offered by independent password managers, says Richard Forno, director of the Graduate Cybersecurity Program at the University of Maryland at Baltimore County, and that’s “a good thing,” given that Google has billions of users, he says. 

“If it allows users to create more random passwords and store them, that’s a great thing just on the basis of reusing passwords across systems and different categories of systems,” he says. But he warns that consumers may see a lengthy lag time between how they treat their personal passwords and what their employers mandate them to do."
