"corporate security theater" - love that phrase. Never suggesting this is the best or most secure solution, I just think it is one that makes talking about it fun when you are trying to convince older parents for example, about why it matters.

that's the thing though: it's a failure of engineering that they need to care, not grandma's. it's on us that we put out this notion that people should use good passwords for every site and not reuse them. that is physically impossible unless you just use one or two sites. we have the ability to make this a lot better nowadays yet nobody seems to be talking about it as if it were as inevitable as death and taxes.
