The Most Common Passwords Updated for 2016…and yes, “Password” is still being used

Posted by:

Easy Passwords are still being used.  Botnet’s love it!!!

People never seem to ever learn.  We all know about the hacks that allow others to get our usernames and passwords, yet, due to laziness or lack of care, people continue to use weal and common passwords that say “Steal me”, “Hack Me – Let me make it easy” or ” Please take my private information”

We are all busy and prefer not to have to remember so many letters numbers and symbols…but the world we live in is one full of people and machines searching for ways to get to personal information to utilize in a negative way.

So please take a look at your passwords and take a moment to make them tougher to figure out.
