    From my understanding, a dummy password is a generic password used internally by programmers who work on servers.

    Based on this definition, the translation would be "clave de acceso genérico"

    Is a "stupid password" - for one stupid person who has no common sense and no brain at all.

    hi


    "contraseña estúpida" - "contraseña para estúpidos" "contraseña a prueba de idiotas" etc. etc.

    A dummy password is a generic password. Not a password for stupid people.

    In context:
    "The..."dummy" password is used for all requests; all users have the same password in the back-end server registry. The use of the common "dummy" password offers no basis for the application server to prove the legitimacy of the client logging in with that user name."

    ok, yes, is correct, was unaware of the technical nature, and it, is precisely what the question relates. (A generic password eliminates password administration)


    but, in spanish "dummy", can be used in numerous ways... as a noun, and as a verb ( as verb it is best defined)

    "dummy", is usually a stupid person who has no common sense and no brain at all.

    Dummy by itself might mean stupid, but context can change everything. Word combinations can be very tricky. For example, there are dumb waiters which are small freight elevators. Here the word dumb has no relation to stupid either.

    yes, "Dummy Bear" for example.

    but the word "dummy" now is part of the "Hispanic common terms", in fact, no needs translation.

    but, you're right.
