Bad Passwords

I have decided the internet is impossible. To wit: you have to have different passwords for every site that requires them. The password needs to be random letters, numbers and symbols that don't spell a word. You have to change the passwords (all of them) every 30 days. And you can never write them down.

Humanly impossible.

But at least try, people.

Gizmodo put out a list of the most popular passwords on the internet. The number one password:


The second most popular password:


You can see the whole list at the link above.

If you don't want to be hacked at least try to have a good password. If I were a hacker, the first thing I'd try the the passwords on that top-25 list.

There is technology that will do this for you and all you have to remember is one password. At least make it a good one.
