Passwords - user password trends (easy to crack passwords)

It is a disgrace that humans still got the hang of setting passwords. It seems as though that most internet users have inextricably tethered themselves to a promise of not setting strong-enough passwords, which may force hackers to reconsider their choice of profession for its grueling nature. As you devour more of this story, you will begin to envy hackers for having it stroll-in-the-park easy.

A new study has revealed that internet users nonchalantly continue to set unimaginative, fatuous passwords. The study appraised 28,000 passwords that were recently stolen from a U.S website.

Sixteen percent of the users had set their first name as their password. Around fourteen percent chose easiest to recall key combinations, including 1234 and 12345678. Other users, who apparently dont rate their mathematical ability highly, chose to steer clear of numbers and settled for passwords such as AZERTY and QWERTY.

Five percent of the passwords were found to be inspired by popular things and celebrities, including names of movies, TV shows and actors. The strongest password in this category was found to be Ironman as it sounds impenetrable.

Three percent of the people reckon passwords are another medium of expression. How else would you explain passwords like loveyou and Ihateyou..

If you want to set a password that for sure will be very hard to crack, use a combination of alphanumeric characters and special characters like underscores ampersand ect..Adding numbers in the middle of the password is damn effective too..
