Strong passwords are extremely important nowadays to prevent unauthorized access to your online accounts and websites.

If someone else manages to guess or crack your passwords, then they may start to use your online account to see your private data, including email and bank accounts. They could even start to modify and destroy your personal files or could take over your computer to perform illegal activities in your name.

The importance of picking a good, secure password can’t be emphasized enough. Here is a short list showing some of the weakest and most common passwords used on the internet:

  • password
  • 123456
  • 12345678
  • jesus
  • abc123
  • iloveyou
  • trustno1
  • 1234567
  • 123123
  • password1
  • master
  • 111111

I believe a strong password is a password you can’t remember. Strong passwords should have atleast 8 characters including uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers and special characters such as #@^%$)!}. Your password needs to be totally unique and different for each and every one of your login accounts. This is to make sure that in the event that one account is hacked into, your other accounts will not be affected.

Most people use the same password all time because their chosen password is easy to remember. Few people even change their password. To really make it secure and hard for others to guess, you will need to change your password every few months to be on the safe side.

Here are some examples of strong passwords:

  • u_gBz03l
  • KU5whpz6
  • 4z,Jn3ZI
  • gMgPO=sv
  • aBm.rm:R
  • ;wq9:Qv:
  • Oq=UmiO,
  • sSn,xE;W
  • xY8=hnOp
  • OaL;3TGy
  • Wp;0tSwn
  • ZU=M;ZIi
