India’s largest bank, SBI wants you to keep a banking password like Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s newborn baby boy xæa12musk
Elon Musk and Grimes’ newborn baby boy is making headlines around the world right from the day he was named. They had recently announced their decision to name their newborn baby X Æ A-12 Musk. The unique name for the baby created headlines around the world and left a lot of people baffled.
But India’s largest bank want’s you to keep your password exactly like the Elon Musk’s boy – X Æ A-12 Musk. On the occasion of the World Password Day, State Bank of India (SBI) has referred to X Æ A-12 Musk as a perfect password for your bank account.
It has asked its customers to keep unique passwords for internet banking purposes. SBI recently tweeted, “Here’s a friendly reminder to update your passwords and don’t set it as a family member’s name!”. “We like our passwords strong, and baby names unique — #xæa12musk.”
In case you didn’t get the joke, here’s what is what SBI wants to say: banking passwords with your or your baby names usually suck as they are easy to guess and even easier for hackers to guess. But if your baby is cryptic like X Æ A-12 Musk, you are surely better off against hackers.
Meanwhile, Musk in an interview with Joe Rogan recently explained how to pronounce his baby boy’s name. “First of all, my partner is the one who, mostly, actually came up with the name. I mean it’s just X, the letter X. And then the Æ is, like, pronounced ‘ash’… yeah… and then A-12 is my contribution.” A-12, Musk explained stands for Archangel 12, the name of one of his favorite planes.
So essentially, X Æ A-12 is pronounced as “X-Ash-A-Twelve”.
Imagine the day your baby names are as cryptic as Elon’s baby. Pretty soon we will have babies named 3CPO, R2D2, or T-1000. In the meantime, congrats, X Æ A-12Musk is your new banking password!
