For what it’s worth, today is ‘change your password‘ day. Just wondering… are you like most people… do you use the same password nearly everywhere? I do. And that could be a big problem. I do use 1Password, a Mac program that helps me remember the which of the three or four passwords generally I use… but I should do better. What are the most common passwords, you ask?  Well… here you go.  DEFINITELY change your password if you use any of these: 1. password 2. 123456 3.12345678 4. qwerty 5. abc123 6. monkey 7. 1234567 8. letmein 9. trustno1 10. dragon 11. baseball 12. 111111 13. iloveyou 14. master 15. sunshine 16. ashley 17. bailey 18. passw0rd 19. shadow 20. 123123 21. 654321 22. superman 23. qazwsx 24. michael 25. football SOURCE

Every day, it seems like I’m signing up for some kind of new, free web offering.  It used to be that you could make your password whatever you wanted to… but here lately, more and more websites are making you jump through all kinds of hoops… telling you what CAN and CANNOT pass as a password on their sites. Things like:
  • no username in your password
  • no 12345 or password as your password
  • passwords need to be longer than 3 letters
These kinds of things drive me crazy! So what does the perfect password look like? See here fromZoneAlarm (found at TheNextWeb.com) Seriously? Again?  Seriously? I use a spiffy program for Mac called 1Password that keeps all my passwords straight  for me.  I love it. And yes… I usually stick to about 3-4 standard passwords, all of which I can usually remember, but are hopefully something you would never think of.
