Every year, Splashdata publishes a list of the “worst passwords,” and this year’s list was announced a few days ago.
The number ONE worst password? “123456”
The word “password” has topped the chart for a while, but was unseated last year by “123456.” The very-bad-choice-of-a-password……. “password” …… remains at number 2 for this list.
I assume no one reading this blog is using either of these two passwords (am I right?)
BUT….. are you guilty of using any of the others on this list?
Take a look…. and give a thought to your own password safety. A safe password should have a mix of numbers, letters, and symbols. It should not contain personal information. You should have unique passwords for different accounts. And, you should change your password often.
