Why Your Password Is The Next To Get Hacked [Infographic]

The first computer password was created at MIT in 1961, and ever since then they have been taking up our time and brain power.  Even today in the age of constant security breaches passwords such as password and 123456 are still in the top five, leaving our data vulnerable.  Information security professionals recommend having separate and distinct passwords for every login you use, but for most of us that would mean having to remember dozens of passwords. 

The way some people deal with this is to keep a document or spreadsheet with all their passwords.  This makes hacking your accounts even easier, especially when you name the document “facebook password”.  This is a more common phenomenon than you might think. 

There are a lot of different ways to handle your passwords, but given the current environment of constant data breaches you are going to need multiple unique passwords that change frequently as well as a secure way to keep track of them all.  Learn more about what you can do to keep your information secure from this infographic.
