Last week we shared the popular numerical passwords you shouldn’t use…ever (1111, 9999, 1234, etc.)
Here’s another list from Time of the THINGS you shouldn’t use either (they’re on Google’s “most hackable” list:
The names of your pets
Important dates, like wedding anniversaries
A family member’s birthday
Your child’s name
Another family member’s name
Your favorite holiday
Something related to your favorite sports team
Your significant other’s name
The word “password”
The study also found about HALF of people have told other people their passwords . . . and 3% leave their passwords written on a post-it note on their desk.
Good advice…unfortunately now we have to change ALL of ours!
