What Is #NewPassword?
Brands never fail to fetch an opportunity for marketing their product on social media and whenever a social issue or social media trend comes to light, they use it to their maximum advantage by plugging in their product quirkily.
Something similar is happening on Instagram and Twitter as the #NewPassword is trending on both the social media platforms.
Famous brands like Fevicol, Rajasthan Royals, LivPure and HDFC are posting some quirky passwords. For those who aren’t familiar, when a password is changed, one has to enter a new password and then retype it to confirm the password.
While you write and confirm the password, the system automatically suggests whether the password is weak or strong. The stripe below the typing bar turns red if the password is weak and turns green if the same is strong.
Similar templates are being used by brands to promote their product.
