Your Kids Probably Know Your Passwords . . . and If They Don't, They Can Figure

According to a new survey, your kids probably know all your passwords and PINs. And if they DON'T, they can probably figure them out.

Eight in 10 kids say they know the passwords for their parents' computers, phones, and tablets.

One in three kids said their parents KNOW they have the passwords, and LET them use their electronic devices . . . but the rest have to get them on their own.

18% of kids say they got the passwords by peeking over their parents' shoulder while they were logging on.

But 12% just try some obvious combinations until they FIGURE IT OUT. One in 10 have even locked their parents' account by guessing wrong too many times.

The survey also found that one in four kids have used their parents' credit card to buy something online without them knowing. They spend an average of $50. One in five said their parents never found out they spent the money.
