Running of creativeness to come up with a memorable yet secure password to your online accounts after changing it for so many times? Here is some good news for you.

Cyber experts from Britain's Government Communication Headquarters, the country's intelligence network, have found that your computers may be safer from hackers if you do not have to keep changing passwords.

"It's one of those counterintuitive security scenarios; the more often users are forced to change passwords, the greater the overall vulnerability to attack."

Most password policies insist that users have to keep changing their password which makes historical password information useless and forces users to periodically think about security.

But the problem is that "this doesn't take into account the inconvenience to users - the 'usability costs' - of forcing users to frequently change their passwords," the experts said, "The majority of password policies force us to use password that we find hard to remember."

"Attackers can exploit this...New password are also more likely to be forgotten, and this carries the productivity costs of users being locked out," they said.
