Talking tech since 2003

I stumbled across this animated gif file on Reddit today and it reminded me of how secure Windows 98 was.  That’s a joke by the way.  For those of you who remember Windows 98, I’m sure you remember the super secure the login screen.  You know, the one you could easily bypass with a little trickery and a couple mouse clicks.

Well, if you don’t remember or you never knew about the gaping security hole in the Windows 98 login system, check out this little animation below.  And if you ever stumbled across a Windows 98 system with a login username and password now you can bypass it (side note: we don’t endorse gaining unauthorized access to computers).
