Do you remember what your first password was? If you’re like many of us, you probably kept using it MUCH longer than you should have despite the security risks… and you may even still be using it today! The first Thursday in May is World Password Day, and there’s no time like the present to finally let go of that old password that has been with you for so many years!
For this challenge, we are asking you to film a funny reenactment of how you might have chosen your first password, with an emphasis on using a fake password and not giving away any actual personal details (or password details) in the process. This could mean dressing like a younger version of yourself or using a “little kid” filter, while sounding out the name of a favorite childhood TV show/character/sports team etc. with a number. Using on-screen text overlay, describe the scenario. Examples: “Me making my first password when I was 12 years old” or “Me making my first ever AOL password in 1999”.
The video will then transition to show you in the present day sounding out/typing in the same “password” with some light-hearted dialogue like “Me using that same password to this day to sign into my work email” or “me still using this password for every important account I own” (feel free to put your own creative spin on this).
End your video with a voiceover or text overlay letting people know that it’s time to finally change that password, and call out that they can manage all their passwords in one place with 1Password. Example: “In honor of World Password Day, I think it’s finally time for a change. With 1Password, you can create new secure passwords and manage all your passwords safely in one place... and finally let go of [childhood show, book etc that the faux password in the video was based on].”
