10 Bad Password Habbits

  1. Including any part of your name in your password (like ‘harry19’)
  2. Using the characters, in order, on the first row of your keyboard (‘qwerty’)
  3. Including your birthday, or other meaningful numbers (worst of all your social security number)
  4. Choosing ‘password’ as your password
  5. Using the same password on multiple websites, or cycling between a handful of passwords
  6. Using all lowercase letters (mixing lowercase and capital letters makes it harder to guess)
  7. Storing passwords in memory, on paper, or anywhere else they could be easily lost and/or stolen
  8. Neglecting to change your passwords for more than 6 months
  9. Sharing your password too frequently or with people who you don’t trust 110%
  10. Storing your password on your browser (especially on a mobile device that you might lend or lose!)
