The sad thing is that there are actually products like this still out there, encouraging people to write down and maintain a paper trail of their various passwords – especially for ‘important’ information. Those most likely to fall for it? Seniors, who are already taken advantage of by a host of crooks and scam artists.

All the more reason banks, e-commerce sites and other login-based websites owe it to their patrons to switch to image-based passwords that are near impossible to disclose (but also easier to remember than tradition alpha-numerics).
