Passwords are a huge part of our technology driven world. In order to be safe, they are supposed to be long, full of numbers and symbols. We're also supposed to have an arsenal of different codes at our disposal. But the truth is people often use their passwords as a form of memory. On this edition of Up to Date, Steve Kraske talks with journalist Ian Urbina about the hidden truths behind our passwords.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
