Cybersecurity experts always advocate for a
strong and unique password, and it is one of
their top priority
3
WHY STRONG/UNIQUE PASSWORD IS IMPORTANT
Cybersecurity experts say how every day malicious
cyber threat actors hack websites and online
accounts, and post lists of usernames, email
addresses, and passwords online. It is not only
the password or data that is exposed with
information that uniquely identifies the user.

SOME OF THE WORST PASSWORD OF 2018
After evaluating more than 5 million passwords
leaked on the Internet, SplashDatas compiled a
list of Worst Passwords of the Year. According
to the company they found that users continue
using the same predictable, easily guessable
passwords.

President Trump debuted on this years list with
Donald showing up as the 23rd most frequently
used password. The 1 and 2 spots were 123456
and password.

Morgan Slain, CEO of SplashData, Inc. Hackers
have great success using celebrity names, terms
from pop culture and sports, and simple keyboard
patterns to break into accounts online because
they know so many people are using those
easy-to-remember combinations.
7
SplashData, the provider of password management
applications TeamsID, Gpass, and SplashID,
releases its annual list in an effort to
encourage the adoption of stronger passwords.
8
Our hope by publishing this list each year is to
convince people to take steps to protect
themselves online, says Slain. Its a real
head-scratcher that with all the risks known,
and with so many highly publicized hacks such as
Marriott and the National Republican
Congressional Committee, that people continue
putting themselves at such risk year-after-year.
