Your Password For A Chocolate Bar, A Pen, Or Nothing At All
from the suckers dept
Last year we pointed to a study saying that people would give you their password in exchange for a cheap ballpoint pen, and this year the prize has changed, but the result is the same. A new study shows that all it takes is a chocolate bar and plenty of people will cough up their passwords. Of course, what they don’t realize is that whoever was giving out the chocolate bars was the real sucker. A study last month showed that people will cough up all sorts of info if you just ask for it, without giving anything in return.
