    Try to Avoid the Most Common Passwords

    In recent years, data breaches have become larger in number and impact.
    If you, unfortunately, fall a victim to a data breach, you may have two
    concerns. The one is that your data on this account was compromised. The
    other is that your data on other accounts using the same username and
    passwords may also be accessed by the hacker. @¥#456!

    The main function of a password is to put in place a barrier between a
    hacker and the network, system, device, program or account you want to
    protect. So the stronger the password, the weaker that barrier. It is
    essential to create strong passwords for every account on the computer
    or online. Individuals tend to use passwords that are not only simple
    but also easy to remember. That’s also what the hackers would like to
    see.  

    No matter how strong the password is, you shouldn’t use the same
    password for multiple accounts. Moreover, you should try to avoid using
    the most common passwords.

    Here are the top 25 common passwords of 2018 released by SplashData.

    1.123456

    2.password

    3.123456789

    Every year since 2011, SplashData has released this annual list of the
    world’s worst passwords based on data examined from millions of
    passwords leaked in data breaches.

    According to the list of 2018, users continue using the same passwords
    that were reported to be widely used. “123456” and “password” retained
    their top two spots on the list.

    It seems that they didn’t take the strength of their passwords serious.
    If you want to avoid being a victim of data breaches, you’d better get
    started with refusing the most common passwords.
