I now know another person's password without even wanting to.

He was sitting in the row in front of me, logging into our course page and then *brrrrraaaaapppp* - ran his index finger along the top number row and hit enter.


I don't even know what to say.

    Don't say anything. Do something.

    @GlabbichRulz Caps lock doesn't affect the number row.

    Similar thing happened back in secondary school, did the same thing but with the 3rd line of the QWERTY keyboard. Ended up getting caught by a network technician when he noticed new strange files appearing on the desktop, I got in trouble but the principle of using strong passwords stands.

    when you think about it, it is pretty good idea

    @azous Nope, it was all lazily done with one finger.

    Jokes on you, he goes from ` to =

    Good luck ever getting past THAT level of security.

    But saying something is doing something.

    I agree with @codingmonk though, do something. Inform this guy his password is terrible, that you were able to figure it out without looking, and suggest a stronger password like admin or password.

    @occams is it bad that an admin password at school is
