Valentine’s Day is usually a time for roses and chocolate, but it might also be a good time to change your passwords. As cited in The New York Post, a survey of 2,000 consumers conducted by Prove and OnePoll found that respondents said they felt they could hack their significant other’s devices in just five attempts. Not very romantic.

The data, which is included in Prove’s 2022 Passwords & Authentication Consumer Trends Report, highlights some of the major issues consumers have with passwords:

  • 62% of U.S. consumers said they’d abandon trying to log into an account after just three failed password attempts
  • 51% would switch brands as a result of slow identity verification
  • 34% would switch providers completely if they’re unable to log into their account easily
  • 45% believe it should take less than 30 seconds to create a new online account
  • 64% said that authenticating their identity through their phone is more convenient than using a password
