Author Sang Cheol Park
Keyword Feelings of Password Fatigue, Negative Affect, Shadow Work Recognition
Abstract While prior work has conducted individuals’ password security behavior, there is a relatively neglect to examine individuals’ affect and feelings of password fatigue in password change context. Therefore, this study explicated individuals’ affective response to the feelings of password fatigue by drawing on several theoretical lens. Survey data collected from 267 users were used to test the model using partial least square analysis. This study found that feelings of password fatigue positively affected the negative password fatigue-induced affect, and also both the feelings of password fatigue and the negative password fatigue-induced affect were negatively related to attitude toward changing passwords, which in turn, leads to the intention to change passwords. Furthermore, this study found that shadow work recognition negatively moderated the relationship between attitude and behavioral intention. This study could offer a new theoretical perspective to understand an individual’s security behavior and provide empirical evidences for practitioners in charge of IT security in organizations.
