I recently read an article about passwords and some of the most popular ones people use.
The article is over at Gizmodo.com. The article is entitled, “The 25 Most Popular Passwords of 2015: We’re All Such Idiots.”
Can you guess what the top 3 passwords were??
First place: 123456 (Unchanged)
Second place: password (Unchanged)
Third place: 12345678 (Up 1)
If you are using one of these passwords or the others on the top 25 – CHANGE IT NOW! Everyday attacks are being made on various websites and technologies. All it takes is for them to get your email address and one of your passwords and that hacker can make your life miserable.
One common issue is, I don’t know how to remember a complex password or create one. I’d highly recommend you use LastPass (referral link). This tool includes a password generator and stores your passwords so you can easily retrieve them while browsing the internet or on your mobile device.
