A huge part of hacking into accounts involves getting passwords by using people’s habits and common behavior against them.
Millions of people regularly do not smart things like:
- write down passwords and leave them lying around;
- give them out by email or phone (when no legit company asks for them by email or phone);
- make ridiculously simple passwords like “123456” and “password” (those exact two are actually used by millions);
- do the above with their passwords from work, allowing theft of company databases full of client info.
If you’ve heard this all before, that’s because it’s common and it works for bad hackers.
The solution: Create passwords that are practically impossible to guess, keep them in your head, and give them to no-one.
Luckily, there is a really easy way to create passwords that are both super-secure and easy to remember.
