Can you guess what the worst passwords of 2018 were?

The top 2 passwords in 2018?

  1. 123456

  2. password

3 in 4 people use passwords so weak, they are very easily hacked. We're talking: 123456, Pet names, children' names, spouse's names, football teams, favourite player, etc

This is despite warnings of large-scale data breaches occurring more and more regularly, the reasons?

  • Long passwords hard to remember

  • Used the same password for years

  • Used the same password for multiple platforms

So what do you need to do:

  • Use a phrase rather than a word

  • Use two-factor authentication

  • Use a separate password for each application
