The Georges of the world need to stop using their names for their online passwordsIn honor of World Password Day this week, cybersecurity firm ID Agent analyzed password data it collected from sites not accessible through your everyday web browser, otherwise known as the dark web.
Among the list of offenders, using your first name as a password is perhaps the most easily crackable choice.
Apparently, people named “George” do this a lot as it was the most common first name found in this password data.
Sports team names are a popular choice for people opting for a weak password.
If you’re a baseball fan from New York, perhaps your password is “Yankees,” which is the most common team name used for a password.
