Do you know what the number one Hacked password is

If you remember the classic Mel Brooks satirical take on sci-fi,Space Balls; you may remember the scene where the King of Druidia was forced to reveal the combination of the planet’s atmospheric-exterior gate. ‘The combination is: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8′. And the response from Brooks: “That’s the same combination that’s on my luggage.”

Whether or not you saw the movie, you’d probably agree choosing something so obvious is just inviting a hacker to hack you the recent survey said that every 50 people online 3 still use that password.Or the other most common abc123 most websites don't allow you to use this password but most do so here are 3 ways not to get hacked

Use complex passwords
avoid using simple passwords or combos use something like your dogs name or things that you see in movies.

Change your password after six months

If you are online often, it isn’t a bad idea to change your password monthly; but don't change it too much that you forget all your passwords (I keep all my passwords in a box), if needed. t would increase your protection if your password was constantly changing.

Buy Security Software
There are multiple services and programs available that will routinely change your passwords automatically. This can be beneficial if you have sensitive information that requires the most protection like you credit card number or SSN
