Too Long; Didn't Read

More than 80% of hacking-related breaches involve the use of lost or stolen credentials. The number of compromised accounts surpasses the number of people that we have living in the entire world today. Only one-in-three users bother to change their passwords in the aftermath of a data breach. When they do bother changing their passwords, the updated passwords are often less secure than the compromised ones they replaced. Credential stuffing attacks are something that cybersecurity companies are continually fighting. One recent credential stuffing attack lasted a grand total of 60 hours and involved 44 million login attempts!
