When it comes to keeping up with latest trends on social media, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. What suddenly grasps Netizens’ mind is often hard to gauge, especially when they turn something very simple and serious into funny. And never the one to lag behind is perhaps Mumbai Police’s social media team who put trendy memes and jokes into some serious perspective. After their socially responsible take ‘Ghar se nikalte hi’ memes and ‘If you don’t love me at…’ meme-fest, the team is back joining another trend with ‘Kurkure latch/lock’ photo.
If you are an active member of the Twitterverse, by now you must have surely come across the photo of a door with a broken latch, affixed with a crispy, aka Kurkure. Tweeple are relating to the situation when they try to control or stop something but fail either because they really don’t want to stop it or put up a false pretence.
However, given to this team, they turned that viral photo into something meaningful to promote a message about online security and importance of having a strong password in the virtual world. Comparing the frail crispy snack as the password, they warned, “If this is your password, you are doomed.” Reminding Netizens that “passwords are not for mere consolation! They must ensure protection”, their tweet seemed a little inspired this time.

Although the tweet got a thumbs up from Twitter followers, many users already used this photo to relate to weak passwords in the last few days. In case you missed out on this meme series used by the cops this time, here are some tweets that you can enjoy.
