Are Your Passwords Safe?

Password

Are you using these followings as your online password? Because if you are, that means your account might be in risk.

  • Your partner, child, or pet’s name, possibly followed by a 0 or 1 (because they’re always making you use a number, aren’t they?)
  • The last 4 digits of your social security number.
  • 123 or 1234 or 123456.
  • "password"
  • Your city, or college, football team name.
  • Date of birth – yours, your partner’s or your child’s.
  • "god"
  • "letmein"
  • "money"
  • "love"
