We have been warned and forewarned a million times over. But it seems that we do not heed the call of the wise when it comes to the kinds of passwords that we use. Let’s admit it, we all live in the digital age where usernames and passwords are as common as the air that we breath. As almost all of us have internet connection, we have a lot of sites that we go to frequently.
To answer our need of being connected with the people that we love, we must have an account to most probably Facebook or MySpace. Because we need to be heard and our thoughts need to be known by the people in our network, we Tweet with our Twitter accounts. And as everything is done online, even our banking and other sensitive transactions are made online as well.
With all these different accounts, how can we remember the passwords to each and every account. To make things easier, we try to use the password that can easily be remembered. Unfortunately, this kinds of passwords are easily remembered and recognized by hackers who are always out to victimize internet denizens.
Experts say that the most common passwords like 1234, qwerty and even password are big no-nos. They also say that your birthday or your pet’s name is also a dangerous password to use because these information are easily obtainable in your user’s profile. So the best thing to do is to create a password that is composed of letters and numbers. Write it down and lock it up in a safe place and of course, never give out your password to anybody.
