A new 2020 report on passwords shows many people are not improving the security of their passwords. The most common password being used is still “123456”, and “password” is the fourth most frequently used. It takes a hacker less than one second to crack these types of passwords, and in 2020, “123456” was exposed over 23 million times!
When selecting a password, you should avoid patterns or repetitions, such as letters or numbers that are next to each other on a keyboard. Adding a capital letter, symbols, and numbers in unexpected places is important for security -- and in all cases, do not use personal information, such as birthdates or names.
Abbreviated passwords also work well. Choose a phrase like ‘I want to go to England” and abbreviate it by using the first letters in each word and change the word “to” to the number “2” for the result of iw2gtne. Make it even more complex by adding a symbol like “&”.
