My bank, HSBC in the US has shocked me, they really had. When logging in to my account online I failed the security once, then twice... this got me thinking: "just do not block me, as I am travelling and restoring everything may be a pain". Only then have I noticed this banner on the far right:
Please, anyone, tell me, why would one want to rename password into memorable answer and security key into password?
Yet after all they same:
Your credentials will remain the SAME.
Real.ly? They have blown my brain today.
P.S. asked HSBC to comment and got this standard retarded answer:
