World Password Day - Global Survey 2022

Global survey for World Password Day about the current pulse on security, password management, and the return to work

What will you learn in the 2022 World Password Day Global Survey?

Bitwarden partnered with Propeller Insights to poll over 2,000 consumers in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, and Australia. While receptive to the importance of security, individuals continue to struggle with embracing habits that could better protect their data. 

Almost all (90%) of global respondents are ‘somewhat’ or ‘very’ familiar with password security best practices - but does being familiar mean putting into practice? Not quite. 

  • A majority of global respondents (84%) reuse passwords across more than 1 site 

  • Almost one fifth (21%) of respondents reset their passwords every day or multiple times a week

  • Over half (55%) of global respondents rely on their memories to manage passwords

But, there are some encouraging signs. In a world in which almost a quarter (23%) of global respondents have been affected by a data breach, it is exciting to learn that two-factor authentication (2FA) has truly gone mainstream. 

  • Most (83%) of global respondents are ‘somewhat’ or ‘very’ familiar with 2FA

  • Almost three fourths (73%) of global respondents use 2FA for work

  • Over three fourths (78%) use it for personal accounts

Despite well-documented geopolitical tumult and an increased attack surface from remote work practices, password managers in the workplace have yet to truly take off. There is major room for growth here.

  • Only 32% of Americans are required to use a password manager at work

  • Globally, that number (25%) is even lower

  • In both cases, a majority (68% in the U.S and 64% globally) of respondents believe workplaces should provide employees with a password manager to protect credentials
