Sky News is good for a laugh. They report that people are urged to drop online passwords altogether in a bid to foil hackers. People and businesses need to move over to other technology to protect personal information from hackers, a cybersecurity expert has said. Don't make me bloody laugh.

So what do we do? Give them as much information as they ask for? Buy everything online with a card?

I'm going out. Toodle pip. ilona
