Are some of your passwords on the top 25 list? Year after year, the most used 6 passwords are 123456, password, 12345678, qwerty, 12345 and 123456789. Following closely are names of sports and athletes, letmein, login and movie related passwords like princess. We know this because there were more than 2 million passwords leaked in the past year.
Psychiatry IT supported computers won’t let you create passwords that are quite so simple but we see far too many simple passwords like Welcome1 and passwords with incremented numbers, to avoid creating a new one every 6 months. It is almost like leaving your office unlocked, except crooks don’t need to be at your computer to break in.
