Passwords that can be Cracked Easily

Passwords are the key for securing our email or bank accounts. We must keep a good combination of small, capital letters, numbers and special symbols. They are the key sources to secure our computers, emails and bank accounts from crimeware, spyware etc.

There are some key points which we should keep in mind not to loose our passwords:

  • The first and foremost thing is not to share our passwords with anyone even to your friends because they might not tell others directly but while they were opening your account others may take a note of it while your friend is with them.
  • A good password should have a minimum of 8digits with atleast one small letter, one capital letter, one number and one special character to make it more strong.
  • We should erase the passwords, history, log-ins etc as soon as we complete the work on a public computer.
  • Change the passwords as frequently as possible, atleast once in a month or two.
  • Passwords should not be easily guessable by any of the system user.
There are few words that we should not keep so that it is not easily guessable:

  • Password
  • 123456
  • Superman
  • batman
  • starwars
  • abc123
  • 1234
  • 1111
  • iloveyou
  • account name
  • Jennifer
  • Micheal
  • Computer
  • Nintendo
  • qwerty
  • Keeping no password
These are the passwords that we should try to avoid to make sure that our passwords cannot be cracked or to be on a safe side.
