can you IMAGINE typing in a FIFTY character password each time? who would do it?A teenager was jailed yesterday for refusing to hand over his computer password to police during an investigation.
Fast-food worker Oliver Drage, 19, was taken to court after police tried to search his PC after a tip-off only to find it locked with a 50-character encrypted code.
Officers investigating a child exploitation racket ordered Drage to disclose the password hoping the contents of his computer might help their inquiries - but the teenager refused. He was then prosecuted for failing to disclose an encryption key.
