The Worst Passwords of 2013

With all of the data breaches you hear about on the news every evening, it makes you wonder how these things happens. Identity theft is rampant and yet most people fail to perform the most basic steps to protect themselves online.

One of the easiest ways to keep someone out of your online accounts is with a strong password. SplashData recently released its 2013 list of the worst passwords. Just take a look at the list:

  1. 123456
  2. password
  3. 12345678
  4. Qwerty
  5. Abc123
  6. 123456789
  7. 111111
  8. 1234567
  9. iloveyou
  10. adobe123
  11. 123123
  12. Admin
  13. 1234567890
  14. letmein
  15. photoshop
  16. 1234
  17. monkey
  18. shadow
  19. sunshine
  20. 12345
  21. password1
  22. princess
  23. azerty
  24. trustno1
  25. 000000

If you’re using any of these passwords or a close variation, you may want to consider updating your password with something a little stronger. Here are a few tips on how to create a strong password:

  1. Use a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters.
  2. Use a longer password with at least 8 characters.
  3. Mix numbers in with the other characters.
  4. Use special characters such as $, #, %, &, !, etc.
  5. Make each password unique.
  6. Keep your it private and make sure no one can guess your password.

      I’ve seen similar reonrictists but still consider the security sufficient ifa) you have some random login number that you write downb) your account gets blocked after 3 tries.If the login number was your account number it could be used for denial of service, so I prefer a random number.Of course someone could still steal your hashed password from the bank and brute-force it which is easier for simple password.But then this is not much easier than installing a trojan, staging a man in the middle attack or sniff your password by other means.

      Hi Linda,I enjoy your blogs!Yes, I agree about the second brain. I love Mercola, and I have been seieng Dr. Rodier (he spoke at an OFFER meeting some time ago, before I came last April) who has many similar opinions about diet.Probiotics have been a life-saver for me. I believe that probiotics as well as diet is responsible for totally clearing up IBS for me.I was blown away at how hard it was for me to go off of sugar. I never thought I had any problem with it (it took 5 very hard days). I worked through his diet for about 9 months and cognition/alertness was better, some memory returned, as well as other benefits, all very gradually.When I gradually begin to give in to binges and go off of diet, as with holidays, my thinking grows dull and inflammation is worse, I think in my brain too. I go back on the diet and there is improvement.My husband likes xagave nectar in his coffee. Have you heard of it? We get a double pack of organic blue xagave nectar from Costco for under $10, and Maceys sells regular organic xagave nectar too.I think you’re right on the mark, Linda. I had 5 donuts last night, after weeks of self-control. I went nuts: It was a pretty good binge I’d say, and while I loved every single bite, today was kinda hard.Keep up your wonderful writing.Leigh
