The Most Commonly Hacked Passwords in the World Revealed

Some people just don’t take the passwords that they are using seriously enough, and this leads to problems down the line. As we all know, hackers are now more prominent than ever, and they are using this prominence to try and make it so that they can gain illegal access to your accounts and allow themselves to profit from any of the details that they manage to divulge from these accounts.

The fact of the matter is that some passwords sound like they were made without any kind of security in mind, as can be seen by the recently revealed list of some of the most easily hacked passwords in the world. One example of a password that tends to be quite easily hacked is a numerical sequence. 123456 is a password that is possessed by over twenty million people in the world! Other types of passwords that have been revealed to be very easily hacked all in all are simple quotes, with millions of people still using the word “password” as their security key of choice which seems like a silly thing to do considering how easy it would make it for someone to just come and hack into your account whenever they feel like it.

Needless to say, you need to pay close attention to the passwords that you do use. Try to make it two to three random words, just make sure that it’s not something that you would end up forgetting because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that would end up disappointing you quite a bit all in all.
