Siblings & Passwords

Firstborn Daughter (with baby Eljay) is staying in the family home whilst renovations are in progress at her house. FD is staying in her old room which is now MB's office, when baby goes to bed very early in the evenings, the room and computer therein are unavailable. First night FD needed to check her email and do some posts on her blog and tried to use her brother's PC, but was unable to get past the login password, TCO was out so she gave him a call to ask for the password. Fireworks ensured when TCO wouldn't divulge his password.
FD protests; "How can you let him have a computer with a password on it?". "He is entitled to his privacy." responds MB. For the past 3 days, while TCO is at work, FD has been trying to crack the password, unsuccessfully. The password topic has been raised by FD morning and night ever since. MB is finding it really quite amusing watching the interplay between her two "grown-up" kids.

Gee, I'm just realizing how lucky it is that I am the only one who can remember the master-password for our network (which is quite complex) and thus am the one in complete power here...

Why would TCO need to password protect his computer? Maybe it's full of downloaded porn?
