The 10 Most Hackable Passwords

YouTube

In today’s world of high-tech computers, we all know that the best passwords are a random mix of capital and lowercase letters, numbers, and even punctuation. But let’s be honest… we ALL have at least one password that’s just the name of our childhood pet.

Google just released the results of a study on the most hackable passwords. Here’s their list of the 10 worst things to use for a password:

1. The names of your pets.
2. Important dates, like wedding anniversaries.
3. A family member’s birthday.
4. Your child’s name.
5. Another family member’s name.
6. Your hometown.
7. Your favorite holiday.
8. Something related to your favorite sports team.
9. Your significant other’s name.
10. 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. So the moral of the story is to make your password a quote from Qbert! #@%$!!
