You can make your passwords as long and as random as you like, but the complexity of a password is irrelevant if you hand it to a criminal willfully.Stashing your money under your mattress is much less safe. When you don't like dealing with banks because you already believe that these corporations are evil, stories like those that create fear are particularly resonant. News of major security threats seem confirm the skeptic's opinion that money is only safe when it's cold, hard cash, not bits in a bank's computer. The threat of your house being robbed and criminals being able to find your hidden bills or walk away with your safe is much more likely than losing money due to cyber crime.
