The company “NordPass” conducts every year a research for the most dangerous “passwords” that one can use.
On one hand, data is extracted that makes our “login” more secure —where it requires a “password”— and on the other, it is an awareness campaign, for those who still insist on using childish combinations.
Unfortunately, for another year, very easy “passwords” such as “123456” remain first in the preferences of users!
The research was conducted in 50 countries and gathered even worse of the kind!
In the list below, are the top 25:
The “NordPass” list includes a total of 200 “passwords”! The first 50 are so bad, that one second is enough for an experienced hacker to guess! The last one on the list takes about three hours to reveal! This, with easy “passwords”, may sound ridiculous, but it is not at all!
The “passwords” we use tend to become more and more easy, while the opposite should apply!
Our digital life is becoming more complex and its security is vital! From “social media” to our “e-banking”, it must be as inaccessible as possible from various skillful persons.
If we think about how many things depend on a “password”, we will conclude that putting “123456” everywhere is exactly the same thing as leaving the house and leaving the front door open!
