I use PasswordMaker to create really strong passwords for use on web sites. It's great. Unfortunately, there are many slacker web sites out there that don't allow punctuation or symbols in passwords. Not only does this make it very hard to use a tool like PasswordMaker, but it also means that they offer significantly weaker security to their users.

Here's the Weak Password Website Hall of Shame (which I will keep updated moving forward):

  • American Airlines
  • American Express
  • America West/US Airways
  • Banana Republic
  • Best Buy
  • Chase Bank/Credit Card
  • HSBC Bank
  • Staples
  • SourceForge
  • TD Ameritrade
  • ... more to come ...
