These 25 Passwords Are Unsafe, So Stop Using Them
When it comes to passwords, it's a memory game I am constantly failing. Almost everything I do online requires a password to get into the site. But, how good are the passwords I've been making up?
My fear is that they are not very good. I try to keep them simple so I will be able o remember them. You know what a pain on in the butt it is to have to go in and change a password because you forget what it was, it makes me want to pull my hair out.
I have like six passwords I keep imprinted in my memory so I can try to easily access the websites and apps I need to use, but my use of simple passwords could cost me more than I want to pay.
According to Tech Cult,
When we keep simple passwords, it becomes easy for hackers to break into your account. Brute force or rainbow table techniques can easily crack your passwords, and your important data and assets are in danger. They could get leaked or stolen. In both cases, you are at a loss. - Tech Cult
