Passwords are getting more and more complicated! You need to add symbols, a variation of numbers… and each website you create a password for has different requirements, making them harder for you to remember. This would make you probably more likely to use the same passwords over and over, and using what you remember.
However, Ryan Seacrest shared on-air the most commonly used things that people use in their passwords that make you prone to getting hacked!
Don’t use these words when making your passwords:
• PET NAMES
• KIDS NAMES
• SPORTS TEAMS
More likely than not, you have all of this information on your social media, and a hacker can easily guess your passwords just by knowing this information and adding a couple of numbers…
Does your password contain one of these? Maybe it’s time to change it up! Check out the video above for more.
