Mornings with Dave & Jen

Password DON’TS
Password DON’TS

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 hometown

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!
