Security tip: When being interviewed on TV, make sure passwords aren't written behind you

What’s wrong with this picture?

Screen capture from TV sports programme. What's that behind him?

It’s just a photo of a man being interviewed on ESPN about baseball. Harmless, right?

Let’s take a closer look.

Uh-oh. Passwords

Whoops.

Okay, so I’m guessing that the interview was done in a press room, and that the passwords are on the wall for the convenience of journalists who wish to file copy and post updates online – but it still seems a little sloppy to have WiFi passwords so blatantly visible in the background during a TV interview!
