Passwords 2018: Is the password you use sunshine, or monkey? Bad news: if a hacker tries to break into your account, guessing the password will be one of the first to try.
SplashData, a SplashID, TeamsID and Gpass password management company, has just released its annual "Worst Password" list.
The company looked over 5 for millions of passwords that leaked 2018 and published 25 more common. All in all, these passwords are used by 10% of Internet users.
Although most of the codes in the list have appeared in previous lists, the new list also includes the codes: princess, sunshine,! @ # $% ^ & *, And donald.
If you use any of the following passwords, replace it directly with a stronger one. Strong codes can be found with more than 16 digits, letters (lowercase) and special symbols.
Due to the nature it is impossible to remember such passwords, use a password manager. The Keepass app is open source, free and very reliable. It saves the codes locally (on your computer) and not in the cloud, with very strong encryption.
