Why are our Top Ten Terrible #passwords still being used?

News and information from the Advent IM team.

If yours is on the list and if it has been for a while, you really need a better one!


If you need a method then avoid dictionary words and choose a phrase / title / lyric you can easily recall. Take the first and last letters of each word and capitalise one of each pair, add a number between each pair of letters and add a symbol at the end and beginning. Now you have to remember the phrase or word and the method you used but you will have a much more complex and hard to guess password! It also means you won’t need to change it so frequently if this is something that causes you to stick to familiar but genuinely terrible passwords.
