Prone to Hacking and Breaking In, Don't Use This Type of Password


To maintain the security of our account, compose at least three random words but are easy to remember in a password.

INPHEDIA.ID - The UK National Cyber ​​Security Center (NCSC) in its research and analysis found that millions of people use passwords that are easily guessed on sensitive accounts.

In this finding, it certainly helps reveal gaps in cyberspace knowledge that can make anyone in danger, especially exploited for certain purposes.

According to NCSC, in order to maintain account security we compose at least three random but easy to remember words. Unfortunately, many people use the same password and are easy to break into. Here are 4 types of passwords that should not be used because they are included in the list of passwords that are vulnerable to exposure and burglary.

1. General Phrases

It was found that "QWERTY" - referring to the top six letters of the series on alphabet keys on the computer keyboard - was ranked in the top five passwords that were easily broken. The phrase competes with "PASSWORD". For those of you who intend to use these two words as passwords, consider again.

2. Sequential Numbers

In addition to common phrases, the password "123456" was actually used in 23 million accounts that were victims of a number of individuals. Besides the password, the second most predictable sequential number is "123456789". Then, a number series that is also popularly used by hacked accounts is "1111111".

3. General Name

A number of people's names are also used as passwords. But it was revealed that a number of popular names, such as "MICHAEL", "DANIEL", "JESSICA", "CHARLIE", and "ASHLEY". If you use famous words or names as passwords, your account will be at risk of being hacked.

4. Football Team

NCSC found a number of names of football clubs that were used as passwords were weak. The first position of the easiest password to break is "LIVERPOOL" followed by "CHELSEA". For those who idolize the soccer team, you don't have to make it as a password if you want to keep your account safe from someone who has the potential to abuse.

So, avoid and don't use your first name, soccer team, or favorite band name as a password. Because, your account is very sensitive to being misused when using these words.

Although passwords mean keywords, it's good not to just use words. When making a good password it starts with making structured sentences. Choose easy-to-remember sentences, but you shouldn't use information about your life.

Also, avoid using pet names or family members. The longer and not connected to you, the better the password will be. (TPS.IN/ENG/*)
