Password Security

8 posts in this topic

I just got through talking about how insecure the internet is when I see this.
Please don't blame Yahoo that your email got hacked because your password was fluffy24. (name of my cat and my favorite TV show. They will never figure that out)

Take some personal responsibility against the dangers of online anything. The "it will never happen to me" is denial in it's greatest form. It is not some dude in his mother's basement drinking Red Bull's, in his sweats, hacking passwords.

 

Here we go, the most popular passwords of 2014:

 

1. 123456 (Unchanged from 2013)
2. password (Unchanged)
3. 12345 (Up 17)
4. 12345678 (Down 1)
5. qwerty (Down 1)
6. 1234567890 (Unchanged)
7. 1234 (Up 9)
8. baseball (New)
9. dragon (New)
10. football (New)
11. 1234567 (Down 4)
12. monkey (Up 5)
13. letmein (Up 1)
14. abc123 (Down 9)
15. 111111 (Down 8)
16. mustang (New)
17. access (New)
18. shadow (Unchanged)
19. master (New)
20. michael (New)
21. superman (New)
22. 696969 (New)
23. 123123 (Down 12)
24. batman (New)
25. trustno1 (Down 1)
Okay, I can't look at this anymore. I just want to cry. But on the other hand, I can sum it up in 2 words.....job security.

LOL Brent, thanks for sharing and bringing this all to our attention. I have different usernames/passwords for almost every site and try not to repeat them. That way if they ever do figure out my password they only get into one thing of mine ;)

 

I tend to like using words but also add numbers and characters to it in both front and back.

Nice. Good rules to have.

 

If you want a fast way to lose clients, tell them your password got hacked. No one in the computer/online world should ever get their password hacked. We should know better than anyone else. That is what makes us special and valuable. Oh-oh......I just heard the sound of a 1000 keyboards being put into action.

It is good to use password manager apps so you can keep private data safe and not easy to forget it.

Thanks for the tip. It is a very dangerous thing if you used those password, which can be scanned very easily with the latest technology. I say a post that the password can be reset easily with certain software. So use a complex password and store it in a secure place like 1Password, LastPass.
