    How often do you change your passwords
    - for websites that carry info you want very secure (like bank)?
    - for websites where exposure of password would do less damage but you still want secure (maybe like Facebook or Amazon)?

    If you work for an organisation (business, government, etc), does the job require you to change your work password periodically?

    As often as necessary, whether that is a breach or "security feature".

    Every week on Saturday. I have about 60 or so passwords and I change about 3 or 4 on the list every Saturday. All Government passwords: once a month. Microsoft has Patch Tuesday, I have Password Saturday. :)

    Some weekly or monthly. Most low-priority ones yearly or never.

    Some never, I use the same password almost everywhere for some pointless or onetime login webpages except a few, then when I feel like it. A password for bank is secondary, since SMS verification is in place, but Facebook, that is the most important one, since I use Facebook login pretty much everywhere, forums, eshops, etc.
    Yes, it is very annoying, we go like this: Monday123, Tuesday456, since no part of it can repeat until 6th time. We stick it on the monitor then. :isay:

    When I have to due to a breach, or when I feel it's about time to change. I have no schedule that I follow :)
