LOL! Believe it or not, '123456' is most popular password in the world!
Ever seen the movie Hackers before?...
And also the Date of Birth of a person. Either it's a six-digit one, or a variation on it.
One of my non-critical accounts have abc123 password.
same over here xD
btw 'rockyou' ? lol that a weird one
I don't use any of those passwords.
my little cousin told me once:
"hey, I've spotted dad's typing his computer's secret password! Lemme type it to you..."
and she typed ********
...she was 16, btw
16 is not exactly little anymore...
As funny as that is, I wonder if anyone actually tried using that as a password?
Think of it, it may be the simplest to use, and yet possibly the hardest password to figure out!
LOL yeah at first i was huh? ohh lol. good one
Sometimes the most obvious one is the most hardest one to figure too!
Damnmit .. now I have to change my password. .. urgh ..
LOL! I wonder if the popular passwords at Western Digital are...
I always use passwords like 123456, asdjkl, qwerty for unimportant accounts.
LOL! You are one of the culprits!
DYKT : Your e-mail accounts may be hacked and used to spam people like us???
I only use simple passwords when I'm forced to register an account on other forums/websites. For email accounts that I use regularly, I don't do that
Best username/password ever
I have to admit that they are easy to remember.
I once created very complicated passwords, as advised by folks - a complex combination of characters and numbers but man... the worst happened - I totally forgot it within the week!!
So we really have to balance between easy-to-remember passwords and something that is secure enough to deter most hackers. Otherwise, we will spend our time asking the e-mail or forum scripts to e-mail us our forgotten passwords!
Speaking of passwords, do you guys have a system for your passwords? Do you like use a single password for everything, or different passwords according to security level / type of application, etc?
I think 2-3 sets of password should be more than sufficient. But in my office, I'm forced to change password every 3 months, and some of the systems do not allow similar password, dictionary words! It's a real headache trying to remember them. It's no wonder people always forget their password!
