Penworth Marketing - Worst Passwords

To create a stronger password (for better protection), consider using these combinations:

  • Make it at least 8 characters or more in length.
  • Do not include your name, company name, or anything easily recognizable.
  • Do not use any complete word.
  • Make sure it contains both, upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols.

Examples:
Upper Case Letters – A, B, C
Lower Case Letters – a, b, c
Numbers – 1, 2, 3, 4
Symbols – `~!@#$%^&*()/?[]{}\|,.:”;'<>

 

If using complete words, make sure they are not recognizable:

Example: If you use the word “happy,” don’t use the combination “HaPpy,” instead use a combination of letters and symbols to remember the word – maybe something like this: “H@Pp>-”

 

Now, here is the list of the Top 10 Worst Passwords Used This Year:
