20 รหัสผ่านโง่ ๆ ที่ผู้คนยังคงใช้ในปี 2020 และวิธีที่คุณจะทำได้ดีกว่านี้

If there’s one thing we’ve all learned when we first started using computers, passwords are a key aspect of cyber security – especially in an age where cyber criminals are getting increasingly advanced.

If none of your passwords made it to the Top 20, they might have been the most commonly used in their category.

For example, under passwords that used swear words, ‘fuckyou’ and ‘fuckyou1’ were pretty common.

Under words of affirmation, or just generally positive words, the most common passwords also included ‘princess’ and ‘sunshine’.

Avoid these things when creating a password.

If you treasure the things in your life and value your privacy, avoid using passwords that contain words found in the dictionary (password), number combinations (12345), or adjacent keyboard combinations (qwerty).

It’s also best to avoid repeating characters, like ‘aaaa’ or ‘123abc’.

And it it wasn’t obvious enough, don’t use any personal details about your life, like your phone number, birth date, or name. The person trying to crack your password might in fact be someone close to you, or have access to personal documents.

Creating a stronger password.

At this day and age, it’s best to use an online password generator that will come up with a really complex, hard-to-remember, combination of letters, numbers, symbols, and different cases.

But now you’re probably wondering, how the hell will I be able to remember my password then?

There are a ton of password managers you can get. They’ll store all your important information, and you won’t really have to worry about them getting breached.

Here are some you can check out:
