    Top Passwords 2017

    Last year the new starwars film added a few new passwords to the annual list,  this year we are back to pretty much the same old favourites.

    There are a few new entries (flower, sunshine), but the rest of the list are the same or slight variations on the normal culprits (password1).

    It always amazes us that despite warnings  people are still using the same basic passwords that are in top worst passwords lists every year.

    So if your password is mentioned below or on our previous lists you should change it urgently, If you are not sure how to create a secure password check out our article below.

    See our Article of how to create a secure password

    How To Protect Yourself Online?How To Protect Yourself Online

    1) Create and use Secure Passwords

    Your password should be at least 8 Characters long and be a combination of letters, numbers and symbols.

    Don’t reuse your password, if someone gets hold of your password they will try it on other sites, so try to create a unique password for each site you use. or at least for important sites e.g. your banking keep that password separate.

    If you would like to know how to make / choose a secure password check out our guide here.

    2) Don’t trust links or attachments in emails.

    If your not expecting someone to send you an attachment or a link then treat it with extreme caution as it could be virus/malware.

    3) Enable two-factor authentication.

    If possible enable two-factor authentication, this will send a unique code to your mobile phone to confirm your login. this will prevent most attacks.

    Most of the large web companies now offer it e.g. Facebook, google, twitter etc.

    4) Use a VPN to protect your communications.

    A VPN will both encrypt your data and prevent people from tracking your location.  But they do oftern slowdown your connections and some services will detect if you are using a VPN and ask for extra validation.
