I’m not asking you to tell me. I’m just suggesting you have a quiet word with yourself.
The idea of someone hacking into your stuff, or (worse) stumbling into it by accident, is too horrendous to contemplate.
Yet, I wonder how hard YOUR passwords would be to guess.
Here are some password open-goals you might still be using:
- Password – please tell me you’re not using that, or P455word or P@ssw0rd. It’s not big, and it’s not clever.
- QWERTY or ASDFGH – hackers will love you!
- 123456 or 098765 – they’ve got your number, and it won’t end well
- YourName1 or BusinessName1 – come on, you can do better than that
- Date of birth – yeah, like they can’t find that!
- Common words – hackers have a list, and it’s bigger than yours.
If you’re even slightly guessable, start again, and make a crazy one. Actually, several, different crazy ones.
Then, store them in a password depository like Dashlane.
To give you an idea, here’s the password to my website dashboard:
Actually, it was, but I just changed it.
Can you guess the new one?
No, I thought not.
PS – One thing you should protect particularly well is your Facebook account, as it’s a money-making machine once you know how. I’ll show you how, on my FREE Facebook Group Masterclass next Wednesday the 23rd May at 1pm UK. It’s a live class, not a webinar, and here’s how to register. Hurry, as places are almost all gone.
