This post is also available in: French, German, Portuguese (Brazil)

Password pain is no joke…except when it is. Enjoy this roundup of the funniest and most relatable password memes, tweets, and rants from around the web.

Passwords occupy a strange space in our lives. Likely, you’re using them every single day, but in terms of how much attention we usually pay to them, they’re situated somewhere between our shoelaces and toothbrushes. 

And like shoelaces and toothbrushes, if our passwords suddenly fail us, it’s a massive derailment to our routines. (Ever forget a toothbrush when traveling or break a shoelace on the way out the door? Yeah—the worst.) Those hiccups become particularly maddening because what should be just a tiny cog in our daily machine unexpectedly grinds the whole thing to a halt.
