If you haven’t already guessed, HasÅ‚o is the Polish for “Password”.

As we have explained before, if a TV crew is visting your office it may be sensible to remove any passwords which could appear in the background.

In fact, maybe it makes sense not to have these passwords on show regardless of whether someone is pointing a video camera around the place or not.

Just saying..
